Camber plates give you camber range. You can still wiggle within a degree without. Yours is complete slop, IMO. I would ask for a refund.

The source of the problem. You're beyond slammed. Expect rubbing. You can raise it at least an inch, still get your slammed look. One thing I noticed in the rear is that my spring perch is almost at the limit the ~other~ way (perch/collar is at very bottom) of the mount and I have 3/4" to 1/2" of clearance to the tire. In the front, almost an inch.

Edit: I think the pivot ratio is like 6 to 10, i.e. move the spring perch 3/5 of an inch, and expect an inch difference at the wheel (to fender distance). Someone chime in if I'm wrong.
