high smoke

just e-mail Van at OTG and explain that you already have reg spacers and want to stack with camber shims for 20mm of space/camber and he would prob substitute longer bolts from stacked kit for the same deal when ya buy the cambers. :)

Smoke20, did you find out what size bolt you need. I picked up a set of used camber shims and spacers and was going to do this this afternoon.

*writes this down for future reference*

I'll eventually get a set, I need to do some measuring to get everything as close to flush as I can with spacers and the camber shims.

I am new here so bare with me...what are the difference between the 2...also what are the benefits for each
The shim will push the whole wheel out, while the camber tilts the top of the tire in 3 degree.

The shim is to make the tire look better by making them not look sunk in and/or to just adjust space to fit some custom rims. The camber is for looks and better cornering.

Rear spacer shims push the wheels out. Rear camber shims add negative camber to the rear wheels. I would not get rear camber shims unless your rear wheels are already very flush with the back, otherwise they will lokk even more sunken in. This is why you notice, as in this post, people stack these and use both.
