Does any company make rear camber bolts? I'm having problems finding them. Repair shop says i need new bushings and camber bolts since the ones now are frozen. I've tried it myself and they will not budge. I torched it hot and PB blasted it also. Rusty Sad

Thanks

That's pretty common and often they have to be cut out using a Sawzall. The eccentric camber bolts are the same as the ones for the front. My recommendation is to stick with genuine Nissan bolts as they are made better than most of the aftermarkets. If you have any sort of lift, offset bushings are available on the aftermarket, but, if not, Nissan or aftermarket bushings will be fine. Compare the cost of R&R new bushings versus the price of a new control arm from Rockauto.

Refer this post for part numbers:

Is this a good trusted site for the bolts I need? OEM?

Looks like I just need 1 kit? I think I'll buy new control arms from rockauto.

I checked the other sites but either they didn't have it or they just have the aftermarket ones that i didn't want. All parts on order and hopefully the repair goes well. Thanks guys

When you put the new bolts in slather them with grease! It will keep them from rusting in place again.

Working on the rear end and now I'm stuck. I ordered bushings for the rear lower spring arm that connects to the chassis not the knuckle. The bushing that uses the camber bolt was the wrong part. Does anyone know where i can get them?[/img]

Nissan sells it only as part of the complete suspension link. Good news is that the link, P/N 551B0-EA500, is only around $40 from online Nissan sites like NissanPartsDeal.com

I was able to find the bushing that I needed. Bushing was a direct fit! Only place I found was on Ebay....

Hope this helps anyone who is going through the same problem I'm having. All parts are in and including new pads, rotors, and shocks installed and waiting for alignment. Thanks guys.
