MM castor camber plate install question

713

I bought a set of used plates. They did not come with the spacers. I read the instructions and they say they are not needed for our cars 2011+.

I just want to make sure that I won't need them before I bring the car in for installation. Or do I need to order them from Maximum Motorsports.

Any help would be great, Thanks

It depends on what dampers you are using. The stock Boss dampers are a 2011+ style so you don't need them. The FRPP M-1800-C dampers are 2005-2010 style and that's what the spacers are for. If you look at the instructions there is a graphic that shows the difference between the two styles. I'm assuming you're talking about the MM c/c plates for 2011+ cars part # MM5CC-6.

I thought we discussed this and determined neither of us are using the spacers?

Having more fun than should be allowed..in my Boss
The instructions will show you the difference between the 2005-2010 damper versus the 2011+. Basically the 2011+ have the threaded area that measures 1.5 inches. The older, 2005-2010 style, has a narrowed area that has threads that measures 3.0 inches. The newer styled dampers do not require spacers.

My apologies if this was communicated in pm's etc. I have studied this recently as I'm gearing up for the install....once our snow melts and the temps stay above freezing ;D.
