    I too would like to know this, if theres a guide, or a howto. Got too much negative camber on the front end.

    There are camber bolts that you simply need to turn to get them to press against the tabs on the subfram to add or remove camber.

    Though this is for removal, this page illustrates where they are, and what they look like.

    I know where the Camber bolts are, but, how do you measure/setup the camber correctly?

    Honestly, I couldn't tell you the specs, cause I always got them off the machine while I was doing it. If it were my car, I could do it by eye fairly well, but that's because I have a lot of alignment experience. Caster is another issue though, as that would be near impossible to do by eye. Is your car lowered?

    Nope - stock suspension. The only thing that needs doing, is the camber. I'm getting new camber bolts for it. I had assumed that the only way to have it altered, was to take it to a 4-wheel laser alignment place, although i'd rather save the $500 that'll cost me, and do it myself.

    Kai, I hape that was a typo.

    My last alignment one month ago cost me $65.

    MY brother sets his own alignment. I do not, I prefer to let the lasers do the walking for me in this respect^^
