    Probably the camber adjustment bolts that were mentioned. I have bought some coilies too but still to fit them, LMF do sell Camber adjustment bolts though, depending on the coilies prob worth having a set to give to the garage for when they fit.

    Eibach what? Camber adjustment bolts you mean?

    Don't think it matters who they from, just used I think to screw in and out to align summin or other! Basically just normal set of bolts I think but could be wrong! Not sure!

    If your going -60mm at the front then I'd suggest investing in some adjustable drop links.

    I reckon I personally will prob drop between 30-40mm but heard a lot of people argue about which point you should change to adjustable drop links too!

    do the coilovers come with a bearing? if not make sure you use the one from your old suspension or you will get knocking noises from them like i did!

    you dont just want to be messing with your camber, you dont want some back street garage doing it either, most likely wont have to tho, ive found the tracking is the thing to be out after, never had to adjust my camber after changing suspention.

    get some spring compressors and do suspention yourself, very easy to do, then take it somewhere to have camber and tracking done if needed.

    my GAZ coily's arrived this week, as soon as my mate drops the compressor off, i'll throw em on, wont take an hour. Front torsion bar is the hardest bit as it doesnt always line up easy and the bolts are hard to get in.

    GAZ coilovers have camber adjustment built into the struts, you will have to have your camber set after fitting. Good setup tho
