Question dana 44 help

i just purchased a shortened chevy dana 44 for my isuzu rodeo solid axle swap. i had my friend press new ball joints on the knuckles and along with some of the rebuild parts i purchased came these hollow threaded bolts that go on the end of the axle that control alignment camber. on the axle i bought these were removed and needed to be replaced. how far down do i thread these down? i was told not to mess with these bolts but i have to because they are non existant in my axle.can anyone help? i dont want to do this wrong.

Solid axles don't have camber adjusters, it's in 'theory' not needed because camber won't change unless the housing or spindles are damaged.

By the book says to install the split ring flush with the top of 'c', others will say go a quarter of the way down, I think it doesn't matter either way as long as you torque it to 50 ft/lbs before installing the castle nut.
