That's what has been in the back of mind on this all along.

Thanks for the tip.

Those are supposed to be installed under the body. That's part of the reason they are bending so badly. Mine did not bend that badly. If you want a camber plate that installs like you have, you need to buy the more expensive camber plates. Those don't bend and give you an extra inch of travel.

I have experienced this same problem with the GC camber plates. I ended up with a raised top camber plate by Wrightwood Racing but are no longer being made. I believe that Kolkeln (sp) still makes these.

This will give you an additional 1-1.5" of travel before bottoming. The 350 lb spring is part of the problem but it is closer to the correct spring rate for the Bilstein shock.

Another thing to try is raising the car until the control arm is parallel to the ground. This will give you the best geometry for the suspension. Overly lowered cars develope multiple problems.
