Default Having hell of a time finding OEM Camber bolts

Hi all,

I just brought my newly purchased car back to struts and although I found camber bolts (nothing in the front coilovers but it was on the upper bolting area of the rears, I went ahead and swapped it to the front), I would wrench on them and it didn't seem like they did anything and they were aftermarket. I have a 07 WRX Wagon. I read I should really have OEM...

I'm a DD with no track goals. I did a search and RallySportDirect has some but it states just for 02-04 WRX.

All other OEM is OEM-like, which is Pedder I beleive.

I even called local dealers and they told me the part I want doesn't mention camber bolt. So it might just be a regular strut bolt. The parts guy wasn't confident he'd be ordering what I wanted.

I saw subaruparts site has a diagram and it just shows a bolt and not a camber bolt which might be what the parts guy was referring to. Seems like a gamble to just order those.

Hoping someone can link me where to buy or can confirm Rallysportdirect is good for me. I'd even buy used ones if anyone has them. Appreciate the help! Thanks

The front upper strut bolt is a camber bolt, from the factory. The hole in the strut is cut differently, and the hole in the upright is larger.

The lower bolt, and rear mounting bolts, are all standard M14 bolts.

I think there are a few different part numbers for the hardware. Bring these numbers to the dealer and they'll either give you that or a superceded part

front upper adjustment bolt: 20540AA090 or 901660036
washer for adjustment bolts: 20560AA040
lower/rear non-adjustable bolt: 20540PA010 or 20540AA100
nut (same for both bolts): 20550AA010

Go to parts.subaru.com. Input your vehicle information. Find the part number for the upper bolt on the front struts. Done.

Jamal and Patrick, thanks so much! This is the same diagram I mentioned above but even with the pic, it's hard to tell it's a camber bolt simply due to the angle of the bolt in the pic. The PN matched up and I'll go ahead and order these. Thank you!
