    Absolute bollox!

    you can get a lot of movement with the standard bolts as the suspension hole diameter is bigger the the hub mounting hols diameter so there is enough movement for all bu the most extreme of Rear Camber settings

    The camber bolt can be used in either rear position but the normal position is the upper hole. The front upper already has a factory camber bolt fitted, you can add a second after market one at the front in the lower position of needs be. If you don't have any I have quite a few after market onesand some OEM front upper ones. When using an aftermarket camber bolt it must have the lock washer fitted and the tab which goes into the s.ot in the hub must be present as this is what locks the bolt in position once tightened.
