Camber

I was wondering how I should go about fixing mine, just a little lost because I've heard a few different things. I have negitive camber on my front passenger side.
What I've been told is to get a "Camber Kit" and have that put on.
Also "camber Bolts" and to get those installed. But with the bolts I've heard that I need two per side and that I should do both sides.
What I'm confused on is are these the same?
Do I need all four bolts?
What one is cheaper?
What one is better?
What brands should I look at and where I should look at getting them.

camber bolts and and a camber kit are the same thing, they go in where the stock ball joint bolts go, install them and take it to have it lined up, they will charge you to install them, a local auto parts should be able to get them. and yes you need 4

Negative camber on one side only could be a failed ball joint or other suspension part. Get any suspension problems fixed first before you take it in for the alignment.

Some shops won't align you if there's a bad joint.... Keep that in mind.


I like the Ingalls cam bolt kits...both myself and my brother run them...

NOTE: They come in PAIRS. Grant ordered 4, so he ended up recieving 8 cam bolts...
