Can you explain where they can be added on the front suspension to adjust camber?

Typically these bolts are used to replace just one bolt. . I've never seen two per strut. . that first image is just for an example.

Thanks for sharing. I did not know they made these kind of substitute bolts for the strut connection to the knuckle. Learned something new today. Thanks, FC Zach.

Toyota makes oem crash bolts that serve the same function. They tend to be cheaper, and there are claims they hold the alignment better than cam bolts.

How do the Toyota bolts work? Any chance you have a part number? I've seen the cam bolts on Rock Auto but they get pricey if you get a full set of 8.
