I received all of my 427 Edition goodies in the box and I've installed or added everything except the caster camber plates. Does anyone have a photo of theirs that you could post for me. Curious to know what they look like inside the engine bay.

I did the same thing...I see that you also surgically removed the required rubber bands for installation.

With the adjustable panhard bar, etc, I was able to get a 4 wheel alignment from my local, family owned shop.

I'm not sure I removed all of the rubber band on the passenger's side. I get some dull clunking on that side while slowly maneuvering the car; no noise while at speed. Had the front LCA's replaced per the TSB, but I still get the noise. I'll pull them apart some day to check on the noise source when I get new struts.

Ron,

I am eventually planning on using the MM caster/camber plates on my GT500, along with the FRPP handling pack and 20" Alcoa's.

I'll also be using a adjustable panhard bar for the rear axle to center it.

Who/which shop did you use? Not being from the area I'm at the mercy of new people I meet as far as shop recommendations.

I hesitate to take it to Phil Long even though Robert says they have a Shelby/SVT "specialist" Tech working there. When all is said and done, I want a GOOD, straight-up 4 wheel (preferably LASER) alignment.

What "mom and pop" shop did you use?


Thanks,
Phill Pollard

That just shows how stOOpid I am!

I thought the plates went on the outside (top) of the strut towers so I wouldn't be able to use the FRPP strut tower brace that comes with the Handling Pack. I feel like such a dummy!!

This is good news.....
