Default problem with camber bolt fitment

I have a 2004 WRX with Tokico D-Spec struts, and I bought some aftermarket camber bolts for the rear. SPC is the bolt Co.
The tech at Firestone said he couldn't fit the bolt, as he said the tab wouldn't go in without hammering the bolt in the hole--essentially he claimed it didn't fit. I reconfirmed with my vendor that the camber bolt was the correct model.
Has anyone had a problem getting the bolt + washer tab in? Does it require "hammering" or should he have been able to fit it?

Thats what I thought when I first tried to install them too.

You accually do have to hammer them in. Just tell them to line the little tab with the top of the cam lobe and hammer it in. Its a very snug fit when its going through the hub.

Make sure the lower bolt is loose too so it can center itself as you hammer it.

In a word, perfect. Thank you, TiC for the pics (and the suspension) and Sigurd for the advice.
