Any vendors sell the blue poly bushings that are in the MRT /Noltec camber - caster plates. Mine biodegraded. It sat for 6 years and just fell apart..... a little help would be much appreciated.

Default Is there a list of camber plates?

I have Tein double-adjustable plates on my '07 STi and HVT (Hanchey) plates on my '08 STi.
As far as I know Ground Control is the only plate similar to the HVT plate, to get you back some of your bump travel once you've lowered the car.
That doesn't apply if you use coil-overs with adjustable bodies, but I'm not aware of any high-end shock manufacturers that do that. I have great JRZ Pro coilovers and want to run them and they not be compromised.
Can anyone suggest others that don't cost you bump travel? I've lowered my '07 1" on TSS Fab subframes and don't want to have to order custom $6K shocks or lose shock bump travel on what I have.

RCE made some that were lowering (IE gain in bump travel over stock tophats), if you look through the classifieds. Their current ones are the same stack as OEM tophats iirc.

Raceseng CASCAM for the BRZ (which as I understand it is the same fitment as the GD Impreza) seem to be lowering or close to zero gain but I don't have numbers.

AST makes lowering plates, but I don't know if they play well with other brands coilovers.

I would go with the ground control mounts. They sit on top of the tower (with a ring that goes under). They let you add some caster, and they nice thing is they use a separate bearing surface for the spring and weight of the car instead of sending it all through the spherical bearing.

We had a set on the race car, also with jrzs, and it was really low. Fenders had to be tubbed before it ran out of bump travel.

And on that note, JRZ can make you a shorter version of the their subaru struts.
