    You can get rear upper arms that have the camber adjustment.
    Think you can also get camber shims, unless thats the vectra B

    When you say both bolts do you mean both bolts each side as the toe ones effect the camber too.

    Did you set it up using a machine or by eye?

    I've bought the K-Mac adjustable bushes from Regal for my Signum - to sort out the rear tyre wear. Haven't fitted them yet but will do soon. I'll let folk on here know how I get on. Downside is it's a pretty expensive mod, over two hundred for the bushes and then you'll be looking at another hundred for geometry alignment. But it was costing me a fortune in tyres.

    yeah i done the 2 bolts on each side, straightened them a bit but i reckon will still be sore on tires, just lined it by eye but i can get access to a lazer alignment set up and can work it myself so could save a pound or two that way

    and at this moment in time my financial situation doesnt really cover me for those bushes lol

    you got a link to the bushes you bought?

    Your never going to be able to do it by eye.

    Save your tyres and get it 4 wheel aligned.

    Hope this helps - I contacted the company in Australia with a view to buying direct but it was going to be no less expensive and after import duties and taxes, possibly even more expensive and a lot more hassle:
