well, the plates do fit.
The car was sccessfully aligned at -2 degrees front camber, 3.5 degrees of caster.
So I guess that's not too bad. about what i was aiming for. I think i'll keep them in the car. here's how it ended up
I probably won't get any better alignment than what I have right now, but that's about all that I want anyways. Now I just need to get rid of the weird clunk in my front passenger side strut area. All bolts torqued to spec, clunking on bumps like crazy
