Default Camber bolt help

Hi all, need your help. Car is a 2018 wrx limited lowered with RCE Yellows. Took car to a shop for an alignment and asked them to install my whiteline camber bolts for -1.8 camber up front. Toe at 0.

Guy says he can only get -.08 with them installed in the bottom clevis hole and assures me it's fine to install in the top hole, replacing the stock camber bolt. how can this be? ow it possible to only get -.08 with them in the bottom?

Wouldn't allow him to replace uppers. Asked him to max out on the bottoms.

Update: Another guy came out when finished and showed me the specs. They were able to get to -1.6 So confused.

I dunno - first guy didn't know uppers were adjustable from factory? That is a question you should have asked the shop before you left.
Depending on the answer you could have made an informed decision as to whether you trust that shop or go somewhere else...

Yup good point I forgot to mention. I did ask him that very question. Also pointed to where on the whiteline instructions its specifically said DO NOT REMOVE/REPLACE FACTORY ADJUSTABLE BOLTS for that very reason. He said yea, that's all they could get out if it with the factory camber bolts in the top.

Frustrated at that point I said fine, max out keeping the factory uppers in. Maybe he lied and didn't realize the uppers were already camber bolts. Second guy seemed more informed. Either way, it's over now. Won't go back there.

You should be able to get up around the -2 degree range. I installed them in my 2004 WRX for a cheap fix in getting more camber and ended up with -2.1 evenly both sides with STI pink springs. On the stock bolts maxed out, you could probably get -0.8 alone.

I'd suggest installing them yourself and maxing out the lower aftermarket bolt. They NEED to be maxed out or they'll slip. Then have the alignment guy adjust the top bolt to adjust for whatever setting you want.

Don't replace the already adjustable bolt with another adjustable bolt. That's completely not the point of adding a second camber bolt to the mix.
