J&M Caster/Camber Plate question

So I just received my J&M Caster/Camber Plates and upon inspection I noticed on the passanger side plate the notch on the top plate is aligned with the notch on the middle black plate and on the driver side plate they are opposite of each other.

Can anyone with experience installing these plates please help with the orientation in which these notches are supposed to be placed?

I know for "street settings" the black notches are supposed to face inward (towards the engine) but besides that the instructions aren't very helpful and i can't seem to find much info on the internet.

Thanks

looks like they made a short cut when manufacturing. they look correct though. they use the same piece for both sides but turn them in different directions

Yes they're both identical, just facing opposite directions. My question is should the top plate on the driver side be flipped so that the notch is facing inward (like the passanger side). I would assume that these notches either need to both be facing inward (in line with the notches on the black plate) or outward (opposite of the black notches)

looking back at it now. It looks like they should be lined up. you could give it a try its not to hard. take that C ring or whatever off the bottom and it all comes apart, try not to loose any bearings..

Looks like the drivers side top plate is not installed properly. Take a photo of the bottom plate with the studs in it so we can verify you have the correct one in your kit. Either post it here or email it directly to me at [email protected]

Thanks for responding Brian. I'm not sure how to disassemble the plates enough to take pictures of the bottom plate by itself and don't really want to get myself in too deep so these pics are the best I can do. I hope they help. The flat end of the bottom plate is aligned with the black plates notch. The humped side of the bottom plate is alighned with the flat end of the black plate. Let me know if you need better pictures.

Looks like the top plate was just installed backwards. Rotate the top plate 180 degrees but make sure the pressed in nut on it fits into the cutout on bottom bolt plate and you should be good.
