Ground Control Camber Plates Install HELP HELP HELP

I posted this in the 1m forum, but since we have the same suspension geometry, maybe one of you can help. I'm attempting to install ground control camber plates + kw v3's, but end links WILL NOT ALIGN. I'm losing my mind. What am I doing wrong??? The camber plate and strut are correct for the drivers side. Pleeeeeassseee someone help. Pictures attached

It looks like you have the ride heights pretty low. You probably need shorter end links.

I presume you've figured this out by now, a day later, but it looks to me like you've only lifted one side of the car. We're seeing the driver's side of the car, and the compression of the spring on the passenger's side is pushing the driver's side swaybar end link up.

If that's not the case, then have you disconnected the end link on the passenger's side?

Yeah, that was the exact issue. Ended up jacking the lower ball joint to create some load on the spring and it slipped on fine. Huge n00b mistake. Oh well, got it sorted now.

Good call
