Thanks for the info. I was trying to find out what Camber Bolts people were using and this is the only thing I was able to find. I just put in my order for mine and will drop back in when they arrive to confirm my fitment aswell. Thanks JHN.

Bump for others looking.

If I am just getting a H&R + Koni Orange setup to lower the car, are camber bolts necessary for the alignment afterwards? Or can the car be lowered without the camber bolts?
thanks!

Considering most of the people here who post about lowering don't seem to use them, you will probably be fine. There are two general reasons I see to use camber bolts. First, if you track your car and need negative camber to give extra grip in turns, or second, if you have either wider tires or a different offset and want to pull the upper edge in to keep them from rubbing on the fenders.

you can run without camber bolts. actually there's really no adjustment on the Fits besides front toe.

but from a performance perspective, when i lowered my GD and especially the GE, i ran -2 degrees on the front which added a lot more bite during turns vs stock. the open diff really kills the exit of the turn so you want max tread contact while turning.

Does lowering the fit add positive camber that needs to be corrected with the camber bolt? I have a highway car (stock 2015 LX) so i'm ok with very slight (close to 0) camber but i dont want it to be 0 or positive after lowering. The front and rear suspension geometry is radically different, how do they differ when lowering? Thanks.

I went with 0 toe and -1.5 degrees up front when I lowered my car on Swifts. I love the extra bite and turn in response.

The rear is a trailing arm setup, and camber is not affected by lowering. The front is a MacPherson strut, and if anything might see a slight negative camber when lowered, but very slight. When I lowered my car, I also added wider tires (205/50/16) on aftermarket wheels, and without the camber bolts it causes rubbing on the fender liners. If you go with narrower tires or a different offset, you may not need them.

I thought I'd add that I just switched to my winter wheels yesterday and did not see any extra wear on the inside of the front tires from the more aggressive alignment.
