the cc plates are what allows alignment of lowered cars..it will not raise the car, they go on top of the shocks

no it won't raise the car. it allows you to adjust caster or camber without affecting the other (caster/camber) for quick adjustments at the track.

Agreed. The springs control the height of the car, not the struts. Which happen to be what connects to the CC plates.

The other guys answered your height question. The only thing I'll add is that the cc plates allow you to align it because they have slotted bolt holes in the forward/backward direction (caster) and side to side direction (camber). Check out this link and you can see a picture that will give you an idea of how they work. 79-89 Mustang Billet Caster Camber Plates

Incidentally, we offer AFM members a 10% discount on our webstore, so these cc plates I linked would cost $135. The same plates in steel instead of billet aluminum are about $20 cheaper. Also, I noticed that you're in Miami. We're in Lake Worth, so maybe you can stop by sometime and check out our suspension systems in person?
