How to set rear camber bolt

I’m finishing up my suspension upgrades and right now I have all the bolts on each bushing that needs to be “timed” lose. My question is, the camber bolts on the rear are not aligned to the original spot and I would image this would be under a lot of tension if sitting at ride height. So how do I get the bolt (washer) lined up while at ride height or should I snug it up first and then put it at ride height and torque?

Pretty much, I have no idea of this process and need to learn. I just need to get it close to then take it for a full alignment and setup.

Thanks for any info.

Even at ride height you'll be able to turn the camber bolt to what ever camber # you desire. There's some load on the bolt, but it won't hinder you from moving it. Just leave it loose enough, but tight enough that the bolt's eccentric washers are captured between the fences on the subframe. The idea of timing the bushing is that the bushing is not squeezed tight within the subframe or arm, it should be "neutral" Then when everything is at ride height tighten the bolts.

You can check your camber by putting your phone's level on the rotor. When it;s time to tighten the bolts, set your camber bolt to the desired # then tighten to spec, which IIRC is 85 lb/ft.

I hope I answered what you were looking for.

Something that will help doing home alignments is to take two 12" (or 16" for big tires) vinyl flooring squares and put them together so the finished faces are touching. Put some oil between them. NoW take them and place them under each tire. When you are adjusting camber and toe the tire foot print will want to move. Friction here will cause binding and it can make adjustments difficult. But the vinyl squares will greatly reduce the tire to floor friction and make aligning much easier.
