Default Help with cambers. Urgent

Hi

Sup everyone it's my first post and I need help , I am a Canadian Taiwanese currently living in China. I am occasion drifter wannabe after bored with road racing, I slide my back end out almost daily here in China; however, I was a bit feed up with how quickly the front and rear tires worn out at outter edge due to lack of front and rear cambers. went through six pairs of tires within 8000km was too crazy. So I ordered a ground control camber plate and rear camber bushing from friends at USA.
I face problem immediately as the ground control thread broke off due to weak tag weld, but it's no problem there are local welders that can strengthen the area but the rear camber bolts, anybody has experience with it?? shown in pictures, am I getting the right parts? does it replace to the stock rear camber and toe adjusting bushings?? Anybody ever put on on their car before?? Mine doesnt seems to make any sense if it's need to be press into the subframe it will allow absolutely no pivot movement at all, anybody ever put on in before? it's so different to the E30 and MX5 that i've done before. Please help. Thanks.

Although your rear tire is worn to the cords on the outside, the inside tread is not to far behind. Looks to me as though your drifting obsession is going to cost you a lot of tire money with or without rear camber adjustment. You should call Ground Control about the products they sold you for installation advise and why the front parts broke.

Bummer about your GC plates. Unfortunately it's a known issue.

As for the Kmac stuff, I'm not familiar with it but you can get plenty of camber in the rear with the stock stuff. I run -2.4 in the back myself.
