    u cant really adjust the camber on the mk4

    u can move the top suspension bolt in an out a tad to allow a few mm's of movement but if were talkin serious amounts then ur best bet is to look at the cause and if u still need to adjust it then file away the top hole on the suspension legs to make them oval shaped - this will allow more movement.

    U can buy Eibach EZ bolts which allow more movement but i would avoid like the plague as they are essentially just a thinner shanked bolt with a cam on the end that twists to centralise the bolt or sum thing like that lol

    i would get the car to a garage with the proper laser equipment and see how much we're talkin before attempting any modifications

    FK coilovers have loads of camber adjustment in the shock to hub bolts but IMO you should really take it somewhere to get it set up correctly

    Mine was miles out when they were first fitted

    Its not really something for the home amatuar, really does need to be done on a laser alignment setup.

    Both GB and myself have said the best way to get this set is by the professionals with the proper equipment
