They are used to get rid of (or add) camber.. you can't use them on mk3s due to how the shock is held in the hubs.

It basically adjusts the angle of the strut vs hub.

They are for a MK3 fiesta, but surely unless you have wheel spacers the top of your wheel will hit the shock ?

Probably isn't enough to hit the shock. Depends what offset wheel you have though too. I know of one mk3 that had camber shims and it looked awesome! I'll go find the picture...
