Rear alignment bolts

Thinking about attempting lowering my terrain this week and wonder if any one of the few who have lowered their terrains or equinox's have any suggestions on how to set up the rear camber bolts? All the chevys ive messed suspensions with never had this part needed. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

Re: Rear alignment bolts

I'm going to. This was a question to see if there was anything I could set up prior to going there

Re: Rear alignment bolts

take it to a mom and pop shop------

My 2007 Impala was wearing the inner tires.
So I bought the camber alignment bolts and put them in.

I then took it to Pep Boys to get a 4 wheel alignment.
When I left- I looked at the paper- and the before and after specs for the rear camber where exactly the same....
I got home and inspected the rear- they didnt even touch the camber bolts.... as I noted their position... I mean, I installed the darn bolts...so I know where I Left them.

I didnt even bother to take it back to Pep Boys.....why?
I specifically told the guy I had installed Camber Alignment bolts to the rear-- and needed that adjusted.... he didn't listen.
Maybe they'll listen when I stop spending my money there.

I ended up adjusting the camber bolts myself...... you know-- by 'eye' so that it wore the unworn edge more.
Drove the car like that for many many miles... now with even wear-- as the tires no longer showed funny wear for the rest of the time I owned it........... eventually sold it and bought the Nox.



this was the factory- vs the adjustable one----- with that lopsided lobe that allows camber to be adjusted. (these are for IMPALA)




0 adjustment...


Full turn- you can see the amount of movement with the clean metal surface.
