Default Front camber adjusters

I have bought the parts of my wishbones (and welded them) from 3GE being sure that the front wishbone will be designed to get the front camber adjusters. But they were not. Do i have to buy a pair of new front wishbones able to fit the adjusters? Any other options?

When you say the camber adjusters don't fit, which one are you using? The kind with the sleeve or the one that just screws into the wishbone?

I mean the one with the sleeve. I preferred the sleeve one because you don't have to remove the wishbone to adjust camber angle.

I have set my camber twice. Once when I wanted to get it about right for IVA, which I did myself at home. The second time was by a garage who did it properly.

Unless you intend to change the camber a lot (trackdays), I wouldn't bother. Make your car, enjoy your car. If you find you are changing the camber loads and need the sleeved version of the wishbones, sort it out then. Otherwise save your money and spend it on another part of the kit car.
