I searched and the how to i found had some pics but they were not very clear..what I need is someone to either draw a pic of how the washers line up to reduce the negative camber or just a picture of how they line up.. I know what order they go on but i just dont understand how the weird shaped washers go on...jmeb

To reduce negative camber:
You want the arrow on the bolt head and the outer (visible) angled tabs on the washers
pointing towards the center of the car to get maximum negative camber reduction.

Conversly, if you want max negative camber added,
point everything towards the outside of the car.

Yes, both angled tabs point inside-towards center of car.
(along with the arrowhead-triangle on the bolt head)
Should look like this:
Viewed from top, where straight up is towards the center of the car:

Remember, the above instructions are to reduce the amount of negative camber.
I'll try to get a pic in the next few days if you really need one.
I've got some new dampers to install, so that'll provide the opportunity.

Pic.
This view was taken looking straight down on the driver's side.
Note the tabs pointing towards the outside of the car.
I needed more negative camber.

For yours, point them the opposite direction, towards the center of the car, and parallel to the ground.
Don't forget about the arrow on the bolt head...pointing towards center of the car as well.
