M18 x 1.5mm half nuts from our local guy are 42p each but if you have 25 they are 25p each, he is not the cheapest but is the nearest. might be worth hunting about and doing a group buy as that is a lot cheaper.

im pritty sure the iva tester will want to see them fitted and tight but i could be wrong.

i would have liked to see them if i was mot'ing a compnent like that when i used to test
only a matter of time before the vibration makes it get all slack
it is a big thread and has quiet a bit of free play movement a lock nut will keep the thread preloaded and frim
you can always cut down a full nut to a half nut if none are availble
(a full nut may even fit if there is room)

Full nuts fit too, well on mine they do anyway!

Thanks to this thread, have just got another bit of confirmation that I need to lock-nut the rear camber adjusters - ordered a couple of eBay and hoping that I can get them to fit in with the wheel at the correct camber...
