Anyone install these? I've read through the directions a couple of times. Not sure I get how they are going to work with the two sets of bolts. I've not found much info or pics on the internet so looking for any tips.

So I'll be tackling this tomorrow. If I get them figured out I'll post some pics but if you've done these post yours. Thanks.

Part of the instructions are to cut off the upper strut studs and then drill them out. They are replaced with the longer set of bolts. That I get. It's the shorter bolts I'm not so sure about. I just want to understand the whole picture prior to cutting off the studs and drilling holes. :)

Ok, so I started my lowering project today and I did figure out how this kit works. So your supposed to cut the studs off of the original mount and then drill them out. You then put studs up through this plate in the round holes that will be used to mount to the strut tower. You then Bolt this plate to the strut mount through the slotted holes. So you have to set the camber on this plate prior to installing the strut back in the car.

Needless to say I didn't end up installing them as this seems to be a PITA way of setting the camber. So once I'm done I'll see how it aligns, but unless it's really whacked I doubt I'll be using this now. I did take some pics that I'll post up later.

lol I know this is like, 10 years later, but I just got a set of these today. Did you figure out anything with them, or just leave them be?
