2004 ZX3 Camber Kit Question?

I got some lowering spring installed and couldn't do the alignment. Problem is that the SPC camber kit that I bought now keep messing up the bearing that goes in between the spring plate and the camber kit itself. In fact, every time I try to align the bearing pops out of position. If I want it aligned, it has to stay in that position. If I put it so that it sits perfect in the position its not aligned. Any ideas. I have had to replace the bearings about 6 times now.

Have you tried jacking the car up, high enough=tires off the ground to take the weight off, so you can turn or adjust it. Is the stock bearing plate go around the flange ok & fit? Is that the way the instructions say to install it? Just wondering, why'd you go w/ that kit? I heard a lot of negative issues w/ spc camber kits. I looked at those yrs ago. I just read, To install, remove the strut assembly, compress the spring & replace the o.e. upper bearing plate w/ the 81320 kit.
