Cam Bolt question

Can someone please explain how this effects anything?


The first picture is of the lower control arm with the Cam bolt removed. According to the instructions you grind down or remove the Tabs on the control arm bracket. After that step is complete you use the provided bolt and the octagon washer.

I am confused on how and what this step will do/provide.....

Provide a better pressue distribution for the bolt so you don't squeeze the bracket together?

Sounds good but I am not sure....The OE had a washer also and didnt seem to contact the tabs at all....
