Eibach Sportline Lowering Spring front and rear camber bolts

So I ordered my sportlines.. they will be here friday, that said, I was just wondering where I could get some good quality front and rear camber bolts. Ft86speedfactory has some but the rear ones are almost 150.. that's ridiculous, and almost as much as I paid for the actual springs!

Anyone have any good sources where I can order both the front and rear camber bolts for less than 100? I'm not keen on spending an extra 200 bucks for the BOLTS to install my 250 dollar lowering springs..

I really want good quality, so if the price tag I mentioned doesn't get me good quality, it's okay, I'll just suck it up and order them next month

Rear camber bolts don't exist. You'll need rear LCA bushings to adjust slight camber in rear, or new, adjustable, rear low control arms to do any real adjustments.

Oh! My apologies. That must be why the rears cost so much I'm assuming..

Not 100% true Some of us have use camber bolts in the stock LCA's at the innermost mount - not as much adjustability as the aftermarket LCA's though.

Please show me this? I haven't heard of such things. (I truly mean this, not in a sarcastic way)

It's not using the same cam bolts that fit in the upper hole in the knuckle, we use h&r triple c cam bolts on the innermost mount of the stock arm. They give maybe +\- .5 degree so it's more for dialing out a bit of camber and evening right/left up. Sportlines will usually leave you over neg 2 degrees of camber on the rear, these can get you back to 2 or a little under that. If you need more adjustability then you'll probably want aftermarket control arms.

Slight correction, the adjustable bushings are for the UCA, not LCA. You can also get adjustable UCA's as well, but they're more expensive than LCA's. The big benefit is adjusting camber with the UCA has much less effect on toe than adjusting with the LCA. Meaning you can get away without needing an aftermarket toe arm even with a big adjustment in camber if you have adjustable UCA's.

Cool, did not know that was even possible for minor adjustment.

Ah okay, thanks for the clarification. I knew people mostly changed the LCA, didn't know the bushing method was done to the UCA. Im stock height for SCCA Street Class

Those rear bushings are very hard to install, you will probably pay another 150 or more to do it, and then they are a pain to adjust. So don't bother and get some aftermarket LCAs instead, if you really need to adjust rear camber.
