    With the stock bolts in place, are you able to adjust chamber? Mine seems to be stuck in one setting. My passenger side is 2 degrees + off center

    may sound like a strange question but I'm speaking from experience :P did you loosen the lower bolt after replacing the upper?

    I actually didn't notice any lasting difference as they wouldn't hold .
    Ended up using stock bolts looking at adjusting the camber via the ball joint. With offset ball joint.

    I dont know much about mechanic. But I think this is awesome info. I have 15x7 rims but with stock suspension. Noticed that the tires in the front stick way out compared to those in the back!?
    Anyway, if I lower my car I am concerned they would rub on the fender. So since I dont really know much about spring stiffness and what to expect. Is this a possible way to be able to avoid having to roll the fenders ? If i negative camber that is

    You should be fine Nao, but your offset will come in to play. I'm lowered and running 17x8.5 +15 -> the front needed camber and the removal of the fender screw mounting tab in order to tuck in. At 1.5 inches less than that, unless you put on stock-car style fat tyres or have a wacky offset on the rim, it's very likely not going to touch anything, but if it did, then camber would solve the issue.

    When you say the tires in the front stick out - can you attach a photo?

    Sorry for late reply. Here is one I have I think shows a little what I meant.

    it looks like even the slightest bit of camber would fix any potential rubbing, I have an extra inch or more sticking out than you do and I didn't "need" to pull the fenders really, at my size it was more so to get rid of the mounting tab (metal inside the fender) that holds the fender liner in place - there are like 12 attachment points, that 1 isn't important. Worst case for you would mean cutting it off as well or bending it up flush with the fender.

    I noticed that the bolts on our stock suspension are regular bolts.
    With a fixed camber.

    But these bolts for a versa are adjustable.

    This way you can change the the cambe angle for alignments or add negative camber if desired.
    Which part did you order? There is 6 of them.

    Only really works if you want 0* camber
    You cannot apply the torque required to make them stay with pos or negative camber imo

    I’ll dig em out

    What are the bolts torqued too?
