Hey that is my technical term!

Goober up the threads for the camber screw with Loctite.

We like to leave them in goobered up with Loctite so they are there for your next alignment.

Are these the specs they should be shooting for with 275's up front and 315's in the back? This was a reply "from the sticky alignment thread" to an owner with the same Hotchkis shocks.

This is what I would do:

Front.
Camber to -1.0 each
toe to .1 degrees toe out each wheel

Rear
Camber, get the least amount of negative Camber as possible
Toe, toe in .05 degrees each wheel

Hope this helps and drive safe.

Front Camber -1.0
Front Toe 0.00
Rear Camber shoot for -0.50 or less is possible.
Rear Toe IN 0.10
Total Rear Toe IN 0.20

You'll have a better on center feel to the steering with excellent tire wear front and rear.

It is a 10mm 1.5 pitch screw / bolt.

Loosen both clevis bolts. Use and extension on your socket wrench to reach through the wheel spokes with the alignment heads mounted. Turn it to the right and you decrease camber. Turn it to the left to increase camber. Get it exactly where you want it and tighten the clevis bolts.

It is all in the THE Book on 5th Gen Suspension right here on Camaro5.

What is the length of this bolt?
