LCR Race Camber Plates?

So I cleaned up my LCR camber plates for the first time and noticed that one of the plates is bowed around the bolts. I am not sure if this is normal, I don't recall ever torquing down the bolts. but I did TQ down the nuts through the strut tower (don't think I over TQ'ed them down either).

Due to the spacers that allow for movement of the plate I am guessing that this bow is needed to apply pressure to the center plate to prevent movement once the strut tower bolts are torqued down.

Thanks.

I will try to get pictures posted in the next 24 hours if needed.

Edit: Sorry, I suppose this should be in the suspension section... Please move if in wrong section.

Got a picture of the top plate and bottom plate with the center camber plate removed.
