For toe in you adjust the tie-rods. For camber you adjust the cc plates.

I cant see the pics cause I am on a government computer. If you have alot of negative camber and your cc plates are as far out as they will go then you can try and get a camber bolt kit also. They usually give another degree or 2 of adjustment.

I have a camber bolt on my setup also. It looks like your car sits lower than my car and that will make your tires lean in at the top more . My car sits at 26 1/2 from ground to the fender lip and I still bottom out the piping on speed bumps if not hit on a angle. Also I set my height at 26 7/8 when i did my build a few months ago and its settled to 26 1/2 when i just checked today .

You can try to loosen up the big 2 bolts on the bottom of the struts and pull the top of the tire out . Then tightn the bolts while holding the top of the tire out as much as you can . This is with the car jacked up. Thats what i did but i allready had the camber bolt. I dont know if your going to get enough but it might get you close .

Always after big change in suspension get realign !! Go to Sears they have fancy laser with computer that will make your suspension almost to where it should be. Btw you can adjust with tie rod.

When he says toe in i think he means the tires lean in at the top (neg. camber). But you are correct toe in means the space between the tries in the front of the tire are less than the back of the tire and can adjust with the tie rods. Say you messure the inside the front tires and have 84in and then the back has 85in you would be toed in . If you had 85in in the front and 84in in the back you would be toed out . So i think he means his camber is out and that can be adjusted with the CC plates and Camber bolts. Im still new to all this so if im wrong please correct me .

well i did as VORGA said. i raised her up little more. it was setting to low for my liking. it was at 26 3/8 i jacked her up to 27 1/4. and what a difference it made. tires are almost straight (up/down) ( camber) i also got camber bolts as well. so when i get them in. i know 100 percent that the issue will be resolved. thanks vorga. for helping me out, for like the 100th time. haha.
