My camber is not adjustable and my wheel alignment showed one side out of spec.

I'm interested in Camber bolts and wonder if there are pros\cons to them (ie loosening up). Also are they model specific ? or can I get any universal one that fits the strut\hub bolt ?

Ive found price ranges from $60NZ to $150NZ...there doesn't look to be much to them, making them a very expensive bolt.

If one side is out of spec, you might want to first investigate why.  Is something bent to cause this?  Generally the non-adjustable cars don't just go out of spec for no reason.
Subaru have built in camber bolts from factory so there's always a possibility of some adjustment.

One potential negative of a camber bolt set is that they have to be a smaller diameter than the oem bolts in order to get the offset adjustment.  This means they will be slightly weaker than the factory bolt.  They *should* still be more than sufficient for the car though.
I'm not sure how different they are likely to be from car to car.  The only potential differences are length and diameter of the bolt.

This one is on my Ralliart Colt.

From memory it was out by less than .7 deg. (1.7 on one side and 2.4 on the other)
