I've heard some bad things about the Koni Struts popping the thread stud off and koni not warrantying them. I was looking at getting the Koni Struts for my car. If I do still get them is there any suggestions on camber caster plates? Or should I just look at another brand in struts?

it depends on how low you want to go. if your gonna go lower than about 2" you will want some way to adjust the camber and then i dont recommend the Konis due to the breakage issues. If you are not going to lower the car more than 2" then you can usually get away without the camber kits and you dont have to worry about the Konis breaking. Just my opinion.

I plan on going 2".

I just don't want any irregular tire wear. I payed too much for these tires. That is why I was needing to know about any camber/caster adjusters.

As long as your toe is in check you should be fine. Our cars gain very little camber when lowered. Every alignment I've seen with lowering springs showed camber within Ford spec.

Even with a ~2.5" drop on my coilovers and my camber plates adding as much camber as possible (increasing neg camber) I haven't seen any abnormal tire wear.
