Default OEM front camber bolts, can they be used in rear?

I was wondering if the camber bolts on the front WRX suspension can be used in the same fashion and location on the rear suspension, without [significant] modification. I was figuring that it is not possible as I found no information on it, but this question has been burning me for a while.

Thanks for any info.

I have seen this conversion done. You must ream the hole in the upright to the appropriate size and oval the holes in the strut similar to what you find on the front struts.

Better to buy bolts for the rear and not f with it....the bolts can be had for fairly cheap.

Depends on your intentions.

The "just slap them in" camber bolts for the rear are way smaller in diameter than the stock strut bolts. Not the greatest setup if you really plan to push the car.

I was inquiring because aftermarket bolts look sort of... wimpy, for lack of a better term. The OEM ones look very strong. However, considering they (OEM) would require modification to the bolt holes to fit, I would rather buy aftermarket ones. Now, who makes ones that are good...

That is what I was asking, who has bolts that look sturdy like the OEM. IMO the Eibach's look like they would break, but that is just based off of pictures I have seen on the internet.
