Mm5CC-7 is our base caster camber plate for installation of an aftermarket adjustable ride-height coil-over kit. Designed for use with a standard coil-over spring and matching upper spring perch, it does not fit stock or direct replacement springs. While the most popular coil-over springs are 2.5" in diameter, the Mm5CC-7 will fit other coil-over spring diameters as long as the matching upper spring perch is in use.

While in stock form, 2005-14 Mustang camber and caster are non-adjustable, this innovative Maximum Motorsports product lets you align your Mustang's front tires correctly by allowing adjustment of both caster and camber. Especially well-suited for lowered Mustangs.

Not included
The parts to attach the strut to this caster camber plate and mate to the coil-over spring are not part of the Mm5CC-7. Strut installation kits are sold separately; select from the options listed above.

Required
Installation kit to match the struts and adjustable 2.5" coil-overs on your Mustang.

Better by design
Maximum Motorsports invented the double-adjustable caster camber plate for Mustangs in 1993. That innovation pioneered the separate and independent adjustment of caster and camber for Mustangs.

Why do I need these MM Caster Camber plates?

  • Mm5CC-7 is the base caster camber plate for installation of an aftermarket adjustable ride-height coil-over kit. Those aftermarket struts usually use standard coil-over-style springs (2.5" is typical), not stock or direct replacement springs. To attach a strut and a standard coil-over spring to the caster-camber plate, you'll need a separate installation kit designed for specific struts and coil-over kits.
  • Lowering your Mustang will cause the top of the front tires to "lean in" toward the center of the car (increased negative camber). That may cause uneven tire wear.
  • You can easily correct excessive negative camber with MM Caster Camber Plates. The product will work well even on an S197 Mustang lowered as much as 2.5 in.
  • MM Caster Camber Plates allow front alignment adjustment for improved performance. Increased negative camber provides more cornering grip.

Camber Adjustment

  • Because lowering your daily-driven Mustang can cause too much negative camber, you'll want to be able to adjust it back to factory specifications to maintain good tire wear.
  • Camber may be adjusted to a much more negative setting to increase front grip when cornering.

Caster Adjustment
MM Caster Camber Plates provide a small range of adjustment for caster, which is otherwise not adjustable. While the S197 Mustang chassis was designed with a very suitable amount of positive caster for performance driving, it can benefit from fine-tuning the adjustment to reduce the ill effects of production tolerances.

Construction

  • Main plate is laser-cut from high-grade alloy steel, not mild steel. This increased strength greatly reduces the possibility of bending.
  • MM-designed spherical bearing is custom-made in the USA.
  • Durable black powdercoat finish is standard.

  • Separate and independent adjustment for camber and caster
  • 1.6-degree continuous range of camber adjustment
  • 0.7-degree continuous range of caster adjustment
  • MM-designed and custom-manufactured PTFE-lined spherical bearing allows proper articulation, unlike urethane-bushed camber plates.
  • Main plate is a high-grade alloy steel that's much stronger than mild steel and has a much longer fatigue life than aluminum.
  • Steel components are either zinc-plated or powdercoated for great looks and long-lasting protection.
  • Designed and manufactured in San Luis Obispo, California by Maximum Motorsports.
  • Awarded U.S. Patent Number 7607668.

Required

  • Aftermarket strut with an upper spring perch to match the accompanying coil-over spring. When appropriate for the application, the MM installation kit includes an upper spring perch.

Does NOT fit

  • Stock or direct replacement springs

Notes

  • The coil-over kit must have some means to allow rotation for steering, such as: 1) a thrust needle bearing in the upper perch assembly or 2) a needle bearing between the spring and the lower perch. When appropriate for the application, the MM installation kit includes a thrust bearing assembly.
  • While most adjustable-height front coil-over kits are designed around 2.5" inside diameter springs, the Mm5CC-7 will work with other diameters.
