Gday

I went in to get a wheel alignment last week and the mech pulled out one of the cam bolts (Im pretty sure thats what theyre called...the bolts on the front suspension that have a metal disc offset on either end) and it was stuffed, the flat section on one end has worn away and spins freely.

Anyway I am after a replacement set of whitelines or Kmac or similar, just wondering about part numbers and rough prices. Also the rear sway bars have been removed by the previous owner for some reason, what size, part numbers, price should I be looking at?

76 XB GS Sedan

Thanks

no idea about pn or prices but a suspension place should fix u up ( get a few quotes )
also the diff may not have mounts for sway bar so they may need to be welded on

the front swaybar to go for an XB would be a selby's item that bolts on in addition to the original f**k if i can remember the part number

the "cam bolt" aka camber adjuster eccentric bolt is pretty easy to get hold of, they crop up on EBAY ever week or two, not too exxy

Would be wise to replace the cam bolts with the heavy duty type (used in XF onwards) All thats needed is a die grinder to open up the hole in the front cross member.
