  1. 2004 Passat 4 Motion wagon, Can't do rear alignment due to stuck camber adjusters?

    B5 Garage
    Besides soaking the offending parts in Kroil for a week, are there any "magic" ways of loosening the triple square headed adjusters (rear camber)?. If not, and I have to cut or grind them out, where can I get a new set (both sides) of the camber eccentrics, bolts and nuts other than the dealer...

  4. Mcpherson eccentric bolt vs adjustable control arms. Cheap fix for camber?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I got my hands on a alignment specs book for all the cars at my job (work at spring and alignment shop), and found there that i may possibly not need adjustable control arms to get rid of camber through mcpherson eccentric bolt that mounts on a strut. It's new to me, i feel like if it was that...

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    Hey guys, I got this 2012 Passat SE 3 weeks ago, it's a CPO btw. The car tends to go to the right. I thought it was an alignment issue and I told the guy at the dealership, but they BS me that it was because of the roads, and that kinda crap (which he is probably not right because the car...

    I'm a long time original owner of a 2002 VW Passat AWM 1.8t. Recently I did a tire rotation and noticed really bad wear on the inner edge of my tires both drivers side and passenger side. (please see pictures below). I knew instantly my alignment has to be F'ed up. I decide before I...
  10. Camber, alignments and stretch bolts...

    B5 Garage
    So if the subframe needed to be shifted to correct camber and since the subframe needs to be loosened to accomplish this, wouldn't you then need to replace the subframe bolts due to them being stretch bolts?

    I had VW install the H&R oem springs from ECS. I have 18 summer tires running now. I just removed my 16 winters. I noticed that all 4 tires have almost identical wear on the inside portion. It measures approximately 1 inch. I am wondering if VW set the camber for 16s instead of 18s. I understand...

Whats the ideal height so that I wont get tons of negative camber? Do I need to...
