JPSS SAI Plates are Black Magic by design, construction and function and deliver over 3 degrees of additional camber or SAI. The plates are made of billet aluminum. Our bearings are the finest made in America available. Of course none of this matters if they are not the most functional in the industry. It starts with a hard mount system. Some 5th Gen Camaro owners will cringe at the thought of drilling six mounting holes in their strut towers, but most will agree it makes sense when they understand why. We don't want it to move. Period. Anything that clamps in place can move on impact with a pothole or gator-back. Bolted in place, the only way to move a JPSS camber plate is to move the entire strut tower.
JPSS Black Magic SAI plates deliver more than 3 full degrees of Camber or SAI. Not 1 degree. Not 1 degree split between caster and camber. 3 full degrees. If you want to add caster, and we highly recommend you do, use our Caster Locks or of Caster Bolts.

Installation of SAI plates requires drilling six holes and clearancing for the strut shaft as illustrated below.
Locating the plate is mission critical. Measure the strut tower holes and draw a line between them. Hold the plate in the tower while a person above confirms the correct orientation. Use high contrasting spray paint to mark the holes. Remove over spray from the plate with a suitable cleaner. Drill three small pilot holes from the bottom. Drill them out to 5/16 holes from the top. Loosely fasten the plate in place and mark the bearing location. Remove the plate and begin to slowly grind into shape. Go slow. It is easy to grind more, but hard to put back material.
Torque the bolts to 15 foot pounds.
This is a straight forward installation for an Expert Technician with good tools. This is a challenging installation for a novice DIY. If you have doubts in your ability to install the JPSS SAI Plates, have a profession do the work.
