    well it will be out, but not that much it will cause severe damage or excessive tyre ware.

    but if you want to be on the safe side, then you can order camber bolts.

    I've just had my front suspension re-aligned on my MK4.

    My camber on the nearside was way out. Both sides were set to the correct spec.

    Worth every penny, the car's never handled as good as it does now.

    There is some play in the strut to hub, so you shouldn't need camber bolts.

    Depends on how much the cars lowered by.
