Well here's the story. I had bought SPC rear camber bolts about 2 months ago in anticipation of dropping my car (which I did yesterday). Problem is now, the bag with the bolts in them got misplaced; and I didn't put the bolts in. Should the shop be able to get the car back in spec w/o the bolts?

maybe. the tech had to use mine and i know need fron tcamber plates too.

I only have an 1.5" drop on my car though. Yours is 2" if I recall?

yes it is, so you may get lucky. when i got it alinged i got 90 warenty on labor, so i just need to get the plates instaled and take it back in 90 days and they will do it for free.

I shouldn't need the front plates. I'm just hoping I can get by without the bolts.

I didn't need the bolts for mine when I lowered it. It was still within spec.

My camber is -2.1 and I don't have any wear issues.

I just don't like the road noise and it pulls to the right.

I'm almost sure you have the same kit that I do and I did have to use camber bolts in the rear to get mine to align like it should .
But with the front I didn't need anything at all it was still with in specs for the shop to get it aligned.

Will he be able to get them within spec? Quite possible, but the issue is that some "within spec" numbers are really bad for your car. -2.3 degrees of rear camber is within spec but it will wear the inside edge of your tires. To be safe and to reduce rear tire wear I advocate no more than -1.5 to -1.6 degrees. I doubt the car can meet this without the use of a camber correction devise (aka bolts).

Yeah, looks like I'll be ordering new bolts. Any auto parts stores that would happen to carry them?
