Is regular ready rod (all thread) ok for the cam bolts, or do they make a higher grade that I should use? I am talking about what you would get at Home Depot. Thanks.

DO NOT GET ROD FROM Home Depot.
Go to a reputable bolt supplier and get 'Grade 8 Threaded Rod' .

Here is something you may want to look into. I'm using camber adjustment bolts for a 1997 and up Jeep Wrangler TJ. I got them from O'Reilly Auto Parts, part number 82380. They are the perfect length and have perfectly sized cams. The only drawback is that they are 9/16" OD which makes it a little more difficult to make the steel inserts that go into the UHMW bushings. You'll either need to get thick wall 3/4" OD tubing and drill it out slightly or 7/8" OD with .156 wall and make your UHMW bushings to fit. Really not that hard and you don't have to go to all that trouble of making something out of all thread.

Something to consider.

Good luck!

What about the A arm brackets on the frame? Will the 9/16 bolt fit or did you have to open the cam adjustment slots? Thanks for the info!

I made my brackets so I just made the slots the right size.

Mine fit prefect in the slot with zero up and down motion.

Wow, Mcmaster is the way to go! Thanks for the tip Jim. I already received my grade 8 all thread and nuts today. I went ahead and made a cam bolt. Really easy and cheap this way!
