stocklexxy - May 29, 2012 07:23 AM (GMT)
hi guys just need help with the stock rear camber and toe adjusters .. i got my car aligned and they F*@! the bolts that they use to adjust my chamber and toe in :( they told me they cant adjust it anymore.. can i buy just the bolts or do i have to reaplce the whole arm? and what are they called exactly? part number would be good.. is it worth getting aftermarket ones?
thanks for the help in advance :D

They are called excentric books and honestly your alignment should brunt the cost unless they were rusted and seized. You might have to buy the arms if the brackets that support the excentric washers are broken

they were a seized apperntly..
if i get new arms does it usually come with the excentric books already?
are there any after market ones?

Sorry that's an auto text fall they are excentric bolts. Just get some new ones from nick.
Both Ikeya and figs have aftermarket adjustable arms and TRD do a painted replacement with TRD bushes but the adjustables come with link ends which are a far better option

I think you mean eccentric.
Anyhow they dont come with the arms, they would be a part number of thier own. Nick could supply.
I would be very surprised they were seized. Our cars aren't that old, unless you drive it on the beach lol.
They are just covering themselves. Don't offer them excuses or accept that they couldnt do it without wrecking your bolts. That isnt acceptable. There is nothing special about the bolt itself except that it has a fixed washer that is offset to provide leverage to move the arm pivot point.

^ most likely the lips on the arms where the eccentric spacer pivots is deformed and no longer provides adjustment.

:ot: Actually both mean the same thing, Im used to spelling it that way because I work in an American company I guess.
As for the rest I was bored on my phone at the airport and cbf proof reading lol
