Maximum Motorsports 2003-04 Cobra Mustang Caster Camber Plates provide the means to properly align your Mustang's front tires. Especially well-suited for lowered Mustang Cobras because MM's innovative design provides a much wider range of adjustment for camber than the stock adjustment slots.

Fitment

  • Designed specifically for the OEM Bilstein struts Ford fitted to the 2003-04 Cobras. The OEM dustcovers on those struts are not compatible with our standard Caster Camber Plates (MMCC9994) for 1994-04 Mustangs. The MMCC0304 kit includes suitable dustcovers to fit the OEM Bilstein struts.
  • While originally intended for 2003-04 Cobras, the MMCC0304 Caster Camber Plates will fit any 1994-04 Mustang using Bilstein, MM Sport, or MM Race series front struts.
  • There are only two differences between these Caster Camber Plates and our MMCC9994 Caster Camber Plates: The inclusion of dust boots, and the omission of our urethane bumpstops. The bumpstops are omitted because Bilstein and MM struts have internal bumpstops.

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.
  • Maximum Motorsports invented the 4-bolt caster camber plate for 1994-04 Mustangs. That innovation provided the strength required to support a coil-over conversion.

Why do I need MM caster camber plates?

  • Lowering your Mustang will cause the top of the front tires to "lean in" towards the center of the car (increased negative camber), resulting in uneven tire wear.
  • This excessive negative camber can be easily corrected with the Maximum Motorsports Caster Camber Plates, allowing alignment to factory specifications.
  • Lowering your Mustang also results in a reduction of bump travel, which will degrade ride quality. Installation of Maximum Motorsports Caster Camber plates restores most of the lost bump travel.
  • MM Caster Camber Plates provide the means to adjust the front alignment for improved performance.

Camber Adjustment
The wider range of camber adjustment allows the reduction of excessive negative camber caused by lowering. That will improve tire wear of a street-driven Mustang. Camber may be adjusted to a much more negative setting for more front grip when cornering.

Caster Adjustment
MM Caster Camber Plates provide adjustment of caster, which is otherwise not adjustable. Increasing the amount of positive caster improves straight-line stability. Increasing the amount of caster also helps increase front grip during cornering because additional cater causes an increase in negative camber on the outside tire when the car is steered into a corner. The increased negative camber increases cornering grip. The increase in negative camber is only present while the tire is steered, and therefore does not harm tire wear.

Construction

  • Main plate is laser-cut from high-grade alloy steel, not mild steel. The increased strength greatly reduces the possibility of bending.
  • MM-designed spherical bearing is custom made in the U.S.A.
  • Durable black powdercoat finish is standard.
  • Chrome finish on the main plate is optional.

Benefits

  • Provides the means to set the proper front alignment for your Mustang to have best performance and best tire wear.
  • Lowered Mustangs can be aligned to factory specifications.
  • Provides a wider range of camber adjustment than is allowed by the stock camber adjustment slots.
  • Negative camber may be increased for competition.
  • Provides caster adjustment (otherwise not adjustable).
  • Allows greatly increasing caster for improved straight-line stability and improved cornering ability.
  • Designed to support a coil-over conversion.
  • Allows increasing bump travel.
  • Double-adjustable. Both camber and caster can be adjusted independently; adjusting one does not affect the other adjustment.
  • Caster and camber are easily adjusted at the top of the strut tower.
  • Spherical bearing mount eliminates deflection and precisely locates the strut shaft, while still allowing the articulation required for steering and suspension movement.
  • Improves steering response and dynamic alignment stability by eliminating deflection allowed by the stock rubber-bushed upper strut mount.
  • 4-bolt design requires only one drilled hole on each strut tower.

Maximum Motorsports Caster Camber Plates for 2003-04 Cobra Mustangs

Features

  • Separate and independent adjustment for camber and caster.
  • Widest possible range of camber adjustment, twice the range of the stock slots and upper strut mount. Strut shaft can be moved from one side of the strut tower's center hole to the other side.
  • Widest possible continuous range of caster adjustment, limited not by the plate, but by the strut shaft contacting the rear edge of the strut tower's center hole.
  • PTFE lined spherical bearing was designed by MM, and is custom manufactured in the U.S.A. Spherical bearing allows proper articulation, unlike urethane-bushed camber plates.
  • Main plate is a high-grade alloy steel that is much stronger than mild steel, and has a much longer fatigue life than aluminum.
  • Includes strut shaft dust boots compatible with Bilstein struts and MM Caster Camber Plates.
  • Steel components are either zinc plated or powder coated for great looks and long lasting protection.
  • Chrome main plate is optional.
  • Designed and manufactured in the U.S.A. by Maximum Motorsports.
Fits
  • 2003-2004 Mustang Cobra with OEM Bilstein struts
  • Any 1994-2004 Mustang chassis if also fitted with Bilstein or MM front struts

MMCC0304 is designed specifically for the OEM Bilstein struts Ford fitted to the 2003-2004 Cobras. The OEM dustcovers on those struts are not compatible with our standard Caster Camber Plates (MMCC9994) for 1994-2004 Mustangs. The MMCC0304 kit includes dustcovers that fit OEM Bilstein struts and MM struts.

Does NOT fit
  • 2003-2004 Cobra with OEM Bilstein struts. Use MMCC0304 instead.
  • Raceland brand coil-over struts, because they were designed to only fit the stock upper strut mount.
  • Any Fox chassis (including 1979-93 Mustang, Thunderbird, Lincoln Mark VII, Fairmont, Zephyr, LTD, Marquis) because of differences in the pattern of slots and holes in the strut towers.
