Noltec/Whiteline rear camber bushings adjustment questions

So I'm installing them now and just realized I'm not entirety sure how the work. I searched and it answered most of my questions but not all.

Putting them at 6 o'clock, or the bolt hole closest to the ground, will add negative camber, correct? An example would be it will take my current positive 2 degree camber and make it closer to positive 1 degree.

How do I adjust these later if I want to change them? Do I have to knock the bolt with these locking splines out of the tube somehow? Once I get it out of the tube is it easy twist them? I plan on putting these in at 6 o'clock and heading to a shop to get it aligned and want to be able to tell him how to adjust them.

Thanks for the help.

I run quad bushings with no toe-rods so I can't really help you on what position that need to be in. It is as simple as loosening the nut, then you just turn the knurled bold to adjust the camber.

FOR LOVELLS, WHITELINE AND NOLTEC:There is no need to pull the bolt out. Undo the lock nut. Crank the adjuster to the deisred location. Reinstall lock nut. The spline bolt will allow you to move it in either direction.

FOR ROADSAFE AND SUPERPRO. They are adjusted by cranking the bolt. CLOCKWISE ONLY.

Thanks for the help guys. I was most worried about how hard it would be to adjust these bushings but it sounds easy enough.

Now anyone have and insight on which orientation the bushing should be installed? There seems to be some debate between 12 and 6 o'clock to reduce positive camber.

Hole at 6 o'clock gives more negative camber, hole at 12 o'clock gives more positive camber. This assumes you have them installed in the outter position in the control arms.

Yes they are installed in the outer position. I want more negative camber to straighten the wheels out and get better wear from the tires since I'm running Lovell's lowering springs. So 6 o'clock it is. Thanks!

Crap no I had negative and positive camber mixed up. I have around -2 right now and want more near -1 so I will be installing them at 12 o'clock to get the wheel slightly straighter.

Ok just went out and tried to turn the bolt with the splines on it to adjust it from 6 o'clock to 12. That bolt doesn't move and to me it makes sense as to why it won't move. The splines are locking it into the ears coming off of the crossmember and the inner sleeve of the bushing. I even put a cheater bar on it and put all my weight on it. That bolt doesn't move and it doesn't have any nut on the other end.

What am I doing wrong?

It should rotate in the bushing...Have you tryed simply pulling down on it with a box wrench?

GOT IT! It was just stuck I guess. Thanks again for the help. One of the main reasons I buy from you! (Besides these camber bushings )
