S197 Mustang Eibach Camber Bolt Installation:
You’ll first want to start by jacking up the front of your Mustang and supporting it with jack stands.
Next you will want to remove the front lug nuts and wheels so that you can access the strut bolts behind the wheel.
Go ahead and remove the top strut to spindle bolt using a 18mm deep socket and a 21mm shallow socket and pull the bolt out.
Loosen the bottom spindle to strut bolt using the same 18mm deep socket and 21mm shallow socket.
There will be a small tab on the washer that comes with the kit that will sit on the flat side of the camber bolt when you slide it through the strut and the spindle.
The larger tab will determine the camber adjustment. The tab should point away from the vehicle for positive camber and it should point toward the vehicle for negative camber.
Put the bolts back into the strut and spindle and snug them down but don’t tighten them.
Using a torque wrench tighten the top and bottom strut to spindle bolts to 97ft lbs.
Remount your wheel and tighten the lug nuts.

Transcript If you've lowered or plan on lowering your 2005 to 2014 Mustang, the first thing that comes to mind is your front-end alignment. Regardless of how low your Mustang is, now would be the perfect time to purchase a set of Eibach camber bolts from LateModelRestoration.com. These camber bolts feature quality construction, prevent uneven tire wear, and also allow for a positive or negative one-degree of camber to get your front-end alignment dialed in.
Now let's go ahead and jump over here to this 2007 Mustang and let me show you how easy this install is. Start by jacking up the car and placing a jack stand underneath for safety. Remove your lugs from the wheel and get it out of your way. Remove the top spindle-to-strut bolt from the car using an 18-millimeter deep socket and 21-millimeter shallow socket. Loosen the bottom spindle-to-strut bolt using the same socket selection.
Notice the small tab on the washer. This will sit on the flat side of the cam bolt when you slide it through the strut-and-spindle. The larger tab is to determine your camber adjustment. The larger tab should point toward the outside of the car for positive camber and point toward the engine for negative camber. Snug down the camber adjustment bolt with an 18-millimeter deep socket and 15-millimeter shallow socket, but do not tighten.
Using a torque wrench, torque both nuts to 97-foot pounds. Remount your wheel and tighten down your lugs. We just finished up the installation on our Eibach camber adjustment bolts. Each side took us roughly 30 minutes, so about an hour total of your time and it can be done in your driveway. Now once you get yours installed, we do recommend you take it to an alignment shop and have it professionally-aligned.
