Default Just got an alignment, how do I get more camber?

The guy at town fair tire said he was only able to get -0.7 neg. camber on my front wheels. I was shooting for a max. neg. camber of about -1.4. Anyways he was cool and said if I can get camber bolts or figure out why I can't get more neg. camber then he will go another alignment for free since this one didn't do me much good. By the way I was aiming for an alignment that would work well for autocross w/out destroying my tires too much as I do drive it everyday. How can I reach my goal?

You will need Camber bolts.

Any particular brand recommended? Also anything I could tell the tech to look for or try, I am guessing he doesn't work on many WRX's.

tell him when he does the alignment to loosen BOTH the top and lower bolts. some idiots just loosen the top. then ask him to raise the front of the car and yank the bottom of the wheel out while pushing the top in.

or find a different alignment guy.

Thanks, I will stop by there tomorrow to see if the guy can try it again loosening both bolts. Can't wait to try my new JDM V8 takeoffs at the autocross Sunday...should be MUCH better than stock!
