I recently got my car aligned and they said it would be a "good" idea to get my cam bolts replaced (for alignment) so the alignment would hold. They never told me that they ALL needed replaced, so I started looking for some. I went straight to Kia and they told me there are NO ACTUAL CAMBOLTS on the car whatsoever. I would look for myself, but I have no idea what I would be looking for. Can anyone help me with this issue? :(

Cam bolts have an eccentric section so that the upright can be "waggled" a little to adjust the camber angle. Note the meaning of CAM BOLT, it has nothing to do with CAMber; the bolt has a lobe on it like a camshaft lobe. The bolts need to incorporate sleeves to fit the existing hole.

Amusingly, IKEA furniture is often assembled with cam bolts.
