Front suspension help

I bought the mustangsplus Grab-A-Trak suspension and along with the lower control arms came 2 thin, ring-like metal objects. I have never seen them before and I need someone to tell me what the are if that is possible. Thanks.

Throw a pic up with some sense of scale, how big are they?

Are they like a large washer with an offset hole? Could be an eccentric for camber adjustment. Not mentioned in the instructions?

Sadly to day there are no instructions for them :/ they are about the size of quarter. They look a bit like washers but they look more like a dome with a little bit of the top cut off. I'll get some pictures up when I get back to my house.

I don't see what you're talking about in the drawing.

I looked online at the LCA and didn't see it either. I did see the eccentrics in some photos. We're really curious now. Let's have a picture of it

They didn't come with that package. They came with the lower control arms which is a different product.

Without seeing them I would guess that they are used to set the caster/camber and go on the inner control arm connection point.

Those look like the washers that go over the ends of your suspension bushings.

Ahh okay, the stock suspension didn't have them so it confused me.

I highly doubt that cause they came with the lower control arms and the sway is apart of the grab-a-Trak suspension kit while the lower control arms were a separate product.
