Default Anyone using T1 Camber Plates? Install Question!

I am installing the GM T1 camber plates on my front lower control arm mounts, and the GM bolts (p/n15688265) appear to be too short.

Am I missing something, or do I simply have the wrong bolts?

I put the large camber plate (with the semi-circle) where the stock concentric circle bolt head was located, and the rectangular plate on the other side by where the concentric washer went.

When I slide the new bolt through, it is too short (end of bolt just barely sticks out past small camber plate- almost flush) so there is not enough thread to install the nut.

Am I missing something or doing this wrong? Is there another bolt number I should be using?

Thanks for any help!

Jason

The bolts that GM sent are 4 5/16" long fon the underside of the head to the end.

How long should they be?

In counting the number of threads on an old post from David Farmer, it looks like there are about 6-10 more threads on the one pictured versus what GM sent me (22 on mine vs 28-30 or so on David's).

Also, mine had a round shoulder beneath the hex, where as David's only seems to have the hex itself.
