    I've seen the mighty hammer/mallet in action! :)

    I think that is why we need to petition for an exception since the manufacturer does not offer the part from their catalog.

    More than likely that is what he is doing.

    I assume you mean a couple of tenths of a degree by loosening and wiggling, I can't see how you could ever get a couple of degrees that way.

    BTW, while we're on the subject, since the strut bolts are subject to a lot of stress, what's the required torque after loosening them?

    I'm not sure about our specific application, but I've seen lots of 12mm bolts in struts. They're almost always 85-90 ft/lbs. This is about where mine is.

    I think of my camber bolt as a hardened 10mm.

    Just so we're on the same page, camber bolts introduce some minor risk. With one bolt, it's pretty small -- you can loosen it at the track and let it fall into the max negative position. If you run two, you don't have much chance in getting them to index right.

    I know the risk and I'm going for it. This is probably a very temporary setup for me. This is something to think about those who DD and have long-term plans.
