I have 2007 Frontier Nismo with 50,000 miles. I recently purchased some Firestone Destination A/t's. I also just got my alignment done. The mechanic told me he was unable to put the camber in spec because I do not have the camber bolts that I now know do not come stock anymore. My camber is as follows -0.4 degrees on the left and -0.9 degrees for the right. I guess it rounds out to be 0.5. If you need more info, I have the measurement sheet.

I wanted to know how imperative is it to get these camber bolts? I don't want to waste my money.

Thanks.

^Right now? No..
I run -1* camber with my lift (IIRC spec. is -.3 to .8*) it actually helps street manners.

But yeah, if lift is in the future CBs will be in the picture.

I ALWAYS RECOMMEND THEM FOR IT ALLOWS A TECH/OWNER TO ADJUST ALIGNMENT WERE THEY WANT IT. YOU CAN STUFF LARGER TIRES IN WITHOUT RUBBING THROUGH MOVEING THE ECCENTRIC BOLTS TO DIFFERENT POSITIONS.. BEWARE OF A TECH THAT WANTS ALL THE SETTINGS TO BE "IN SPEC" THAT IS NOT WANT YOU ALWAYS WANT. YOU CAMBER IN THE -'S IS FINE. WHEN YOU LIFT IT WONT BE THERE ANYMORE. AND THE ONLY ISSUE YOU MIGHT HAVE NOW IS WITH THE -.9. THAT PUSHES THE TRUCK TOWARDS AND OVERCOMES THE -.4 BUT IF THE TRUCK GOES STRAIGHT WHEN YOU LET GO OF THE STEERING WHEEL THEN DONT WORRY ABOUT IT AS MOVING THE CAMBER AROUND TO COUNTERACT DRIFT/TIRE PULL ETC...IS THE #1 WAY TO DO THIS. THIS IS WHY I SAY DONT TRUST A ALIGNMENT TECH THAT JUST WANT TO GET EVERYTHING IN THE GREEN AND IN SPEC

camber bolts

I installed a Readylift SST 2.5/1.5 kit. It came with the bolts included and the installer said he needed every bit of them to get the alignment into specs.

I just purchased the ADF kit from tylermonday on here, the kit does not come with the chamber bolts. Does anyone have any recommendations on where to get them and if there is a certain one i need?

For those that have less than 12,000 mles and under the first year you can get the camber bolts free under warranty.

OK so I just bought a 2010 LE crew cab, and the ADF 2.5 spacers so i'm guessing i would require new chamber bolts. How do i go about getting them installed? Do i just go in and ask for an alignment?
