There is an adjustment cam at the bolt of the inner side of the lower short rod that has two eye type ends with bushings. I had mine replaced. If you jack up the arm holding it in place it doesn't move but if you let the wheel hang it will when the rod is removed replacing it. An alignment is necessary.

Yours may have moved, rusted and changed or got hit hard etc. I am referring to item #22 in the pic as per mine which should be the same or close enough.

Not sure but #17 or 23 may be the cam washer on that main arm under the bolt head.

Gonna hijack this thread

I'm having camber issues on both sides. I was originally told that my upper control arms needed to be replaced. I replaced them but that did not fix the negative camber issue I am having. Jacked the car up again and the toe links have some play. One thing I did notice is that I have no sway bar or linkage attached to my lower control arms on either side. I'm not sure if they are necessary or are contributing to the problem of my negative camber. I have had the lower arms replaced years ago and cant remember if the sway bar was there or not.

I'm also have some play in my front trailing arm bushing which seems like an all day ordeal to replace.

The struts and springs are fine and the back end doesn't sag. Any suggestions would be great. Below is a diagram. The toe link is #8 and need to be replaced. #2 and #3 are not even present on my vehicle.

The only adjustment at the rear that I know is at the inner eye rod #22 in the above diagram which I have replaced due to failed bushings. There is a cam washer on the bolt than when loosened allows it to be moved in/out.
