Hi Bolivar,<br>I use Aligncraft camber bolts, I think they are manufactured by a company called Ingalls.<br><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK START--><a href="http://www.alingcraft.com">www.alingcraft.com</a><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK END--><br>It took me two years to bend one, so they seem to be OK. They allow up to -1 degree negative(or 1 deg positive, not that anyone would), but I redrilled the front struts using these as guides and I can no go from 0 to -2.25 ged negative.<br>I think the prices about C$35-40 canadian <br><br>Iain <p></p><i></i>

it´s the same for mk2 and mk3, no difference between them,<br>i used them when i had the problem with the chasis alignment that i told you wit hmy old mk2, but i didn´t managed to take it from -2º to 0º, it was a lot, the screws seems good, but you have to take care with them when thigtening them, they use to brake if you use them in a bad way, Iain has more experience with them, the strut is the same, they are commonly use on vitaras over here to avoid, wrong camber at raids. <p>Oscar Bartol.

Whiteline DOES NOT make a camber kit for the<br>rear of the Swift.<br>I saw this from a Whiteline tech on Whiteline's<br>tech message board. Lemme see if I can find it...<br><br>Go to the following link and do a search of the<br>archive for 'swift'... you'll find it...<br><br><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK START--><a href="http://groups.yahoo.com/group/whiteline/">groups.yahoo.com/group/whiteline/</a><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK END--><br><br>Darryl <p></p><i></i>
