    Camber Bolt Question

    I don't know if I'm posting this in the right section, but I was wondering if stock camber bolts can be used in conjunction with aftermarket ones. ex: Eibach Camber Bolts.

    I have a 09 WRX.
    Suspension: BC BR Coilovers

    Looking to add: (So I can change camber)
    - Eibach Camber Bolts
    - Lower control arms (Cusco, GTSpec, or Agency Power)

    I have camber plates in the front already, but my stock camber bolts are maxed out. Just wondering if I can use Eibach Camber bolts in conjunction with the stock ones.

    You can, but generally the idea is that you replace the stock bolts with the aftermarket ones. If you need even more camber (I don't see why you would) you could use both the stock and aftermarket adjustment bolts. You could put the aftermarket bolt in the bottom hole and move the factory one to the top hole, then you could get even more adjustment by placing the lobes on the bolts in an opposing fashion.

    The camber plates are there for a reason. Max out the stock bolts to where they are both even, then use the camber plates to adjust to the desired camber setting. In the rear you will need the eibach kit unless you buy the rear camber plates as well.

    08+ require LCA to adjust camber in the rears.

    my fronts are placed for more positive camber so my stock bolts ended up maxing out

    Right you are, sorry about that, apparently didn't notice the year of the vehicle in the OP. My bad.

    As for the front, I'm confused, you have the camber plates set for positive camber? Or am I misunderstanding the post?

    Sorry about that I meant to say positive caster. My tuner/mechanic set it up so that I would be running more positive caster. So when I went an got an alignment, my stock camber bolts were maxed out negative. I forget by how much though. That's why I was wondering if I can use two camber bolts for negative camber.

    These were $16 a couple years ago.

    I had them in the bottom front holes for a while, but decided I didn't like the risk of them loosening. I got Whiteling Com-C top mounts for the extra biit of neg. camber.
