J&M Caster Camber Plate Question...

I finally got around to installing J&M CC plates, koni oranges, and sr springs on my car today (it only took me 6 months...ha).

I had a local shop do the install and kind of had to walk them through what all needed to be done (I probably should have just done the install myself).

Anyways the mechanics claimed I didn't need the fifth bolt on the J&M CC plates... and the instructions weren't all that helpful on the subject.

So does anyone know if the fifth bolt is necessary or what purpose it serves?

Here's a picture from American muscle's website (the fifth bolt is that big hexagon looking one):

I put mine in based on what the instructions stated. The instructions may be confusing but it does tell you exactly where/why you'd want that screw. I can't remember the instructions but mine is screwed in just like the pic you posted.

Full disclosure, i've never installed a set of Caster / camber plates, but just having a general understanding of caster and camber, i am willing to bet that bolt is essential to caster adjustment.

Thanks guys for confirming my thinking... now that I think about it I bet the fifth bolt has something to do with holding everything steady while making adjustments.
