Are you entering Pike's Peak tomorrow? If you are getting an alignment in a few days just wait as what you can do at your house will add zero value to the next several days' driving unless your real name is Niki Lauda.

If this is purely for giggles and you want to know HOW it works, jump to the suspension forum and begin learning.

First, you need to max out the stock camber bolt. Rotate that bolt and you'll see the hub moving slightly in and out at the top. Find the position where the top of the hub is as far in as it will go. That has maxed out the camber bolt.

Now you do get that last bit of camber by taking up the slack in the bolts holes, kinda the way you described. The way I do it is to place a short section of 2x4 lumber under the "hat" section of the rotor and gently jack up the 2x4 until the slack is all taken up. Now I can tighten the nuts while the jack holds the hub in place. Make sure you do not rotate the camber bolt while tighten the nut.

The amount of extra camber you get might not be significant, but it only takes a second to do.

Guys does the direction of the bolt and nut matters ? Because on my car the nut is looking toward the rear od the car and the bolt is toward the front of the car . It might be reversed because most pictures here are not like mine so is it fine ?

No, it doesn't matter. But I believe it really only goes together one way, due to other bolts on the hub assembly getting in the way of the bolt going through from one direction. If you got it in, it's in.
