    Front camber adjustment amount?

    I am getting my front camber and alignment set next week as one of my cambers was out by -2.25 last check.
    The guy that is doing it says not to bother getting camber bolts as he will see if he can get it with the standard bolts in.
    Is this possible to get with standards or should I just order camber bolts? I don't want to not get enough adjustment then have to order then go back again, but I also don't want to spend if not needed!
    The come in pairs, so do I need 4 in total or just 1 for each side?

    They are adjustable, the strut just moves in and out where its bolted onto the hub knuckle top and bottom, which allows adjustment.
    Should be -0.5 from factory from memory.

    I think a lot of these cars are just a bit bent after all this time...

    I understand they are adjustable but will it be enough on standard bolts to get back from -2.25?
    I have Koni Coilovers, which are dropped about 1 inch.

    It depends where it is in the slot before you start. -2.25 could be the least possible camber you can get if something else is bent, alternatively it could currently be all the way in with 2 or more degrees of adjustment available. It’s pretty agricultural to set up but generally does the job!
