GreySkorpion Oh I will tell them about the bolts, one of my friends is a service manager at a Quality Care center I use. Thanks for all your help Geezer. I am asking for -1 degree camber and .02 inches toe in on each side, or if they figure each side in together for toe, .04 inches.

Geezer The idea is to maintain some camber (-1.5 degress or so and reducing it if you exceed that much). I found that a good "starting position" is about the equivalent of "one hour" from vertical and toward the center of the car. Naturally every car will respond a little differently and that's were an alignment becomes critical after installing the bolts. Remember to tell the alignment tech that you have camber bolts and the amount of camber that you want or you just wasted your time installing them. I painted my bolts heads yellow so the tech could easily find them.

GreySkorpion Okay I haven't pulled it apart yet to see if the bolts are in the same way on each side, from my reading to initially take away negative camber face the lobe pointed straight in so that sounds like the 1 and 11 position you are referring to Geezer.

Yes that's generally correct but then again it can depend which side you initially inset the bolt on (toward the front or back of the car).

Geezer This was in the FF "how to's":

Couple words of advise, a sharp chisel can usually be used to break the welds. The bolt heads have an arrow on them. For an initial setting, point both arrows toward the center of the car (inward) at about the one o'clock position. You'll need to get an alignment for a more precise setting.

step by step rear camber bolt with pictures needed

I have searched high and low, here and on Google and still can't find a perfect step by step including pictures and explanation of which way the washers and lobe should face when installing rear camber bolts. Please provide a link or very detailed explanation. I hope I just missed it out there but I have seen reviews only partially cover the install. Of course, I am trying to correct negative camber. Thanks!
