Finaly after rotation and rotation with bad camber wear I just got my camber bolts on and the new Falkens Anxise (Is that how you spell that?) will be installed on sat.... I would of had them on last sat but some yahoo walked into the shop, saw them sitting there and offered 600$ cash there on the spot to my local hookup, and walked away with them. I cant blame him though he paid 100 more than I did LOL....... I will give and update on the handleing and grip once i have had a week to break them in If I can.....

Sweet action. I considered the Azenis (or however you spell it) for a while, but the price and the tread pattern kinda scared me away. Be sure to give handling impressions in the rain!

Well,

You know about seattle and rain.... I am keeping them on for the summer and we will see what happens. I may get a set of 17's for the winter and shows and use these rims and tires for the track.

Yeh i have done it to a few cars,

its pretty self explanitory. The bolt is shapped like a cam and you turn it tword the direction of the tire wear in the top strut mount.

those $50 dollar camber kits are camber bolts... and you shouldn't trust them.. the real camber plates cost over few hunder dollars...

and a general statement.. azenis have a very short tread life, 200(??_. they're an expensive treat if you just use the car to commute.

I didnt pay 600$ for them!

Some yahoo came in and offererd my shop 600$. I got them for 450$ Mounted blenced out the door. The camber bolts do work, and like I said I am playing with them for the rest of the summer leaving them on the rims and getting some new rims and tires before winter.

I know this is probably an incredibly bad idea but it was all I could afford at the time. I worked for three years at a mechanic shop as an alignment and light engine repair specialist and we had a fairly expensive Hunter alignment machine on board there, and when I had camber problem from hitting a very sneaky pothole going 50 mph the only thing I could afford was replacing the top factory strut bolt (there are two on the strut body) with a smaller diameter eight-guage bolt I bought for a buck at Home Depot. The smaller diameter allowed about two degrees of camber adjustment and I got it back in spec where I needed it. I know it's probably dangerous to have it this way as the nut can back off the bolt and come loose and the strut could slide in giving me some absurd amount of negative camber and probably cause me to lose control of my car and die. :) I don't plan on stressing the suspension until I get coilovers and adjustable shocks so I'm not too worried they will fail on me, but just a word to the wise in case some one else has done a mod like this... beware.
