khongcnten_2007 What is torque specs of upper bolt?
01-26-2017 11:18 PM
sailor Yes, or a replacement that matches as needed.

The tack welded in place nut isn't necessary, any nut you can hold with a wrench there will do it.

khongcnten_2007 I broke a nut which was welded. I am going to install a control arm. Can I use old the stock bolt and nut?

Hmm, that's either some bad instructions or they've changed the design... The larger nut is a hollow collar and the eye-ended portion threads through it with reverse threads. You can loosen the allen-headed pinch bolt and adjust the arm on-the-car by turning the large nut/collar without unfastening anything.

Right, I doubt you see as much road salt as I have either so the camber arm bolts shouldnt be much of an issue, just need some elbow grease to get those out. Dont ask me about the bolts on the rear toe arms though, those were the devil.

rambleon84 just need an extension for your wrench. Upper bolt on my rear camber arm wasn't too hard

Mrfarmer Little bit confused here. I have been told that if I want adjustable camber then I need to drop out the sub frame to change the upper bolt. Is this true or can it be done easier that that. ? Thanks.
