Default What to run?Camber plates on all 4 or pillowballs in the rear?

I am kind of new to the suspension part of fixing these cars up, I recently ordered my RCE T2's and I ordered them with camber plates all the way around (all 4) What is the difference between pillowball plates just the uniball thing that rotates around? What are pro's and con's of running camber plates up front and pillowballs mounts in the rear? what do you guys suggest I order for plates with my c/o's, I need to make up my mind before it gets shipped. Thanks

I'm waiting on my set to ship as well and I went with RCE"s pillow ball mounts since they were available. I spent a month trying to figure it all out myself. The only con with them is the price(not saying they aren't worth it) and lack of adjustability, which really isn't a con since you'll get enough adjustment out of the slotted mount at the bottom. For pro's you'll have one less component that could possibly slip, make alignments and install simpler, have a more solid mount and possibly less noise. I've heard there is a slight benefit having the camber plates pushed all the way in up top that helps with suspension geometry, roll center or center of gravity or whatever, lol. I'll have enough on my plate figuring out the best setup with the adjustments already available to add another adjustable part at this point. If you're going with the typical setup of 400# rear springs, I think the Group-N mounts wouldn't be a bad choice. I'll have 500# rears and that's getting into the area where it would cause more flex out of them. I very likely would have went with them though if the pillow balls mounts weren't available.

Wait, what?

You said you *ordered* them with camber plates all around (past tense)

And you are asking what you should order?

What *did* you order?

What do you use the car for and what is your budget?
