Do you have the plates in the negative orientation per MMs instructions?

Maybe you have Fox body LCA's? (Just throwing that out there...)

Also, you may have your spindle in the "droop" tightening position. Try loosening the strut mount bolts and putting a jack under the hub and then tighten down.

Also, check the orientation like the post-er above recommends. Instructions are on the MM site if needed.

Yeap and per the instructions for race or lots-O-camber you need to take the left bearing plate and put it on the right side, take the right side and put it on the left. If you still need more, enlarge the hole in the strut tower. Enjoy...I know I do
