Default camber adjuster bolts

i have negative camber on the front on my classic impreza after fitting lowered suspension kit causing inner tyre wear, so i had new ball joints fitted and tracking done and new tyres went on to pass the MOT and it passed but i can still see the negative camber so guna check the camber bolts are set to maximum but i wanted to know aswell as the adjustable top bolts i already have can i buy another 2 camber adjustable bolts for the bottom fixing holes or can you only adjust the top fixing???

You're better off adjusting the top mounts. I'd recommend getting a full alignment done to get it how you want it (standard, fast road, race etc).

but the top mount camber adjusters are very expensive on ebay 300 im not paying that, the bolts are only 20. im guna check the bolts already on there to see if they can be adjusted but yeah was thinking of getting a lazer wheel alingment done its only the front that does it the suspension isnt even that low id say about a 40mm drop so maybe the bolts will be enough plus now i have new ball joints and tracking was done maybe will be ok now. i asked a seller on ebay about the adjustable bolts and he said you can only adjust the top bolts so lets hope it enough to correct it, thanks anyway.

My bad, I thought you had adjustable top mounts already.

I guess it's possible to do it with the bottom bolt too. Otherwise you could always use the old school method - Elongate the top hole (where the camber bolt sits now) to give it more play.
