So I started home and heard a pop and pulled over to this
sheared off the top shank off my h&r coilover. It was my bad running it with the spc plates. Now im getting the FSWERKS race camber plates top hats and race springs. But does any body k ow how much the pass shock is for the h&r coilovers?

Sorry to hear that man, never fun seeing your baby on the back of a flat bed :(

Hope you get her back together better than before soon though. I never did like those plates either.

I've heard that not only the SPC plates, but any camber plates with that same or similar design will fail that way. Which is why I haven't bought any yet.

You're correct. This type of camber plate design places a lot of shear load and stress on the piston shaft. This leads to premature destruction of the plate (if your lucky) or ruining the shock (like seen above) or the shocks seals (either way it gets expensive). This is one of those times the cheap solution is not a good one.
