Looking for tips on how to move my gc camber plates. Got them installed a year ago and prepping for some track days this weekend. I seem unable to move the plates. I had them set after installation at -2.5 and after track days back to stock. Now, I cannot figure out how to get them back to -2.5 or close. I loosened the 4 bolts as instructed, jacked up the front, but can’t move them. If I kick my tire on the top, I notice movement, but can’t move hold them in place. Any suggestions? Maybe I do something wrong, but don’t know what. Thanks anyone!

Are both front wheels off the ground at the same time?

Yes, in the mean time. Have been experimenting and finally figured it out. Or at least got them done. It seems that leaving the tires just touching the ground works. Also, I took two of the bolts out to reduce friction. Needed to place them in different position to reach max negative camber.
So far so good.

Yes,I did call them and that helped me getting it figured out. Thanks for the support here! Looks like I got about -3.2 camberin there. Curious on changes on grip and shoulder wear. Will be on the track this weekend.
