    Those w/ Steeda's Caster Camber plates that have the spherical bearing installed: Do you notice that they are incredibly loud when you hit a bump? ie: noise is translated directly thru the spring/strut to the strut tower (spherical bearing).

    I'm planning on dumping mine for P-S-T's C/C plates. They have polygraphite (self-lubricating) bushings that are pretty stiff but have SOME give.

    Sounds like your bearing is bad or the strut is not tight. I have had them for several years and had a problem with a bad bearing but once it was replaced there was no noise and it works great.

    Yeah I would check that top nut on the strut tower because the first tim I put mine on they wasn't tight and it made a popping noise. Mine doesn't make any noise. And if the caster camber plates give then your suspension parts are going to give too.

    the new adjustable steeda CC plates look intersting. I'll probably end up getting a pair of Pro3I plates though.
