    I did a search but I couldn't find the specifications. Does anyone know the specifications? I assume it's something like -1 degrees or something like that. I did buy a set of camber bolts.

    I found that the left wheel was OK at -0.25 degrees, the right side was off at -0.8 degrees. IMO the camber cam bolts I bought weren't good. The diameter of them was only about 2/3 of the OEM bolt diameter, thus wouldn't have the same clamping load of the OEM bolts torqued to 175 lbs. So the normal option was to buy some really Toyota bolts. Although the chart is not intuitive to understand which ones to get. Since I own a lathe I just cut off the raise area of one of the bolts and it works great. The bad news is both rear wheels are way off at -2.3 and -2. Seem no easy fixes for the rears. The cheap shim method doesn't work with the disc brakes. The only solution I found was Godspeed adjustable arms. I wonder will the cost of the new arms be recovered by better mileage and tire life.
