    Hi yall,

    I recently bought my friends 2002 Tundra off of him and have been bringing it back to life. The truck has bad positive camber up front and I can see that the camber bolts could be adjusted to fix this. I have been soaking them with Kroil and haven't tried to move the current ones yet but I bet they are seized to the bushing sleeve.

    The aftermarket options for camber bolts are a terrible design with the plastic sleeves and D shaped washers and bolt. But on the other hand the OEM camber bolts are around $200 for all 4.

    On Amazon there is a set of camber bolts that seem comparable to the oem design for 70$ (linked below)

    https://www.amazon.com/Alignment-Adjustment-2000-2006-2001-2007-4840934030/dp/B0CG66DLTT?th=1

    Has anyone tried these aftermarket bolts out? They are made by some company called 'Qnbes'. I would prefer to save the over 100$ I would spend for the oem ones but quality is a concern with amazon parts like these. Do people go with other options such as camber hardware from a junkard Tundra?

    Ill take any input I can get, I couldn't find any info on these bolts when searching the forums.
    Thanks

    I think you would be the first here. Truthfully, I wouldn't trust a no name brand for something that's critical to your suspension, but that's me.

    You CAN reuse the bolts and CAM nut adjusters from the existing vehicle. The sleeves will definitely need replacement if it's seized in there.

    I bought these, or ones just like them. They look good, but they are made of mystery metal. My alignment guy torqued the wrong end, and now the front and back plates of the same cam are 90 degrees out of phase (they're supposed to rotate together). I bought new OEM sleeves (salvaging my original bolt and front plate), and I'll get around to installing them soon. I may need a new alignment guy as well.

    You heard the saying, "Buy once, cry once?"

    OEM costs more becase it lasted as long as it has. We all want an easy shortcut. Sometimes one exists. So far, many owners have tried to find a cheaper alternative for OEM on that specific part, and haven't found it. I've been here actively for 4 years, and prior to that lurking for a year or more. So far, nobody has found a suitable alternative that isn't garbage or failed.

    Spend the money for OEM. Or scavenge some OEM sleeves from a decent used truck if you're really super hard-up for cash.

    PS - do yourself a favor. Never buy parts from vendors who cannot guarantee the legitimacy of their parts or control their supply chain, i.e. scAmazon, fleaBay, WallyWorld. https://www.tundras.com/threads/so-you-wanna-buy-just-bought-a-1st-gen-tundra-eh.115928/
