Nice write up. I am in the midst of a camber bolt nightmare on my SVT. I figured the hard part would be grinding down the spot welds on the nut. I was WRONG. My bolts would not budge. I thought this odd when you torque them to 55 ft. lbs. I sprayed them with PB Blaster a while before. Then used a breaker bar, with slow steady pressure, and the head of the bolt snapped off quite easily. I was able to get rid of the spot welds on the nut, and figured the bolt may be able to be knocked out. NOPE. They are rusted into the bushing sleeve so hard it might as well be welded in there. Looks like It's going to take some cutting to get these out, and then I will have to get some of the SPC camber arms. I just hope the upper bolts don't give me this much trouble.
