need help with suspension

so i recently got a suspension kit from eibach for my 2006 zx3 and me and my buddy were installing it and got the front springs and shocks on and when we went to move the car the cambering is off by a lot the wheels moved inside and are rubbing the new shocks....any idea as to how to fix this? we think it may be the wrong kit...any advice would be greatly appreciated.

What year kit did you buy? The '06 is kind of its own little animal.

If the kit is for 00-05 then you are going to have a HUGE problem.

The front strut is smaller on this kit on the bottom mounting point, so it will not fit snug in the 06+knuckle.
