LOL...I don't know maybe $25-$35 to spend on something else...there are a couple movies I'd like to see or dinner or 1/4 tank of Gas (LMAO) or welding spool or shilelding gas or NOS refill or can of fiberglass resin or .5" plate of aircraft quality aluminum or brazing sticks or stone type grinding bits...
...anyway the size would make it a little easier to maybe put something together...anybody know ?

The whole is large enough for the bolt to fit on any year. That's not the point. You need to elongate in order to allow the bolt to travel far enough to pull the arm in.

Ideally, this is job for a lift. Once you do first hole, you'll realize you don't need the template. A tip would be to keep the aluminum lubricated while grinding. It is literaly a 15 minute job per side with a dremel, the extention piece and a grinding stone.

wait so the camber bolt doesnt really do anything anymore right? Camber is adjusted by the arm itself. Also, the toe adjustment bolt is on the spring bucket and NOT the bolt holding the camber arm? Im almost 100% sure but just want to be REALLY be 100% sure.

finally, will you need a spring compressor when for when you remove the stock toe bolt/spring bucket?

I can't understand one thing. If you drill out the whole to a larger size, what will stop the bolt from sliding around in it or moving side to side over time ? Can someone explain ?

Thanks,
Mario

the eccentric washers combined with the stock washer guides on the subframe prevent the bolts from sliding just like stock. The SPC toe bolts just move the bolt further out on the washer for added ajustability

I already have the kinetix camber arms installed. But I cannot get the camber to a low setting because the facotry toe bolt does not give sufficient adjustment to bring the toe back to spec when the camber is where I would want it.

If I purchase the adjustable traction/toe rods they also sell (which the also sell together as a kit) I should be able to bring the toe into spec when I have the camber where I want it correct?

The traction/toe bars may help get the toe into spec but will have an affect on wheels caster which you cannot then correct. The only PROPER way to adjust toe on this car is with new toe bolts like the SPC units this write up is about.

Yes, you only need 2, why do you have 4?
