Camber and Caster Adjustment
Using alignment equipment and the manufacturer's instruction, measure the caster and camber.
NOTE: New lower arm-to-frame mounting bolts must be installed with cam bolt kits to allow for adjustment of the arm in the frame slot.
NOTE: The rear lower control arm-to-frame bolt must be reversed in order to install the alignment kit to allow access for a torque wrench.
Remove the nuts and bolts from the LH and RH lower control arms at the frame attachments.
Discard the nuts and bolts.
Loosen the LH and RH stabilizer bar-to-frame bracket nuts. Support the stabilizer bar.
Install the cam bolt kit(s) and snug the nut(s).
To adjust the caster and camber, refer to the following chart.
Adjustments that require moving the front and the rear of the lower arm should be made equally.

Check and, if necessary, adjust the front toe.
Tighten the LH and RH stabilizer bar-to-frame bracket nuts to 48 Nm (35 lb-ft).
Set the final torque to 300 Nm (222 lb-ft) on the nuts only.
