I’m about to install these SPC camber bolts but I was unsure of a few things. Mine are about an inch and a half longer than stock bolts, and have smaller bolt heads. Stock is 22mm (I think) and camber ones are 19 one side and I think 17 on the other side. Does this seem right to you guys?

I know it is a universal kit applicable to many different cars, and it’s about tensile strength not necessarily an exact OE match. I just wanted to make sure this is the right kit for the gen 1 Solara.

Also I just got my alignment done. What do the numbers for “Cross SAI” and “Included Angle” represent?

Included angle is the angle between the strut and the knuckle.
The relational angle between the two I guess.

SAI is your steering angle inclination.
You can pretty much ignore those measurements, just focus on the three basics: toe, camber and caster.

I think I have decided against putting the bolts on. My camber is -1.2 and -1.3 bot in spec so... no reason to tinker iif it an't broke.
