Default uca bolts

i know this has been a beatin topic but for anyone that is having a hard time with getting longer uca to fix the camber i found an online store.

www.boltdepot.com

i believe the stock bolt size is 14x1.5x50mm, correct me if im wrong. they carry them in 8.8 grade fine thread. 50mm is about 2" so figure out how far you wanna space out, convert it, and order what you need.

this may be old news but i just found out about it so i thought post the info for people that need help.

This may not be the best way to go about fixing camber problem, but it is cheap and works!
 on the upper control arm there 2 bolts if u take out the first one closes to the bumper put 2.. 3 Quarter inch washer between the control arm an the body..then on the back put 4..3 Quarter inch washer between the control arm an body it will put your tires back up striaght when you lower your torsion bars

The problem is that when you go too low, the stock uca bolts are not long enough to allow you to shim the uca out far enough to get the alignment correct. The issue isn't finding something to shim it with, the place doing the alignment has shims.

Ok, I had this issue, I will tell you now. Pick up a set of 4x4 truck or pathfinder arms, they are more than an inch longer, so you can keep using factory uca bolts and the longer arm reduces the camber significantly, flip them and swap them to help with ball joint angles

Doesn't extending the UCA bolts that much put a lot of stress on them? Ever had them shear off?

They can, it's unlikely only because they are not a load supporting control arm.

Would the bolts be long enough to have a double nut set up on it...... instead of the shims?
