Mercedes-Benz of Santa Clarita (California) does alignments for $99, and camber bolts are included. You may want to ask your local dealer what they charge for an alignment.

Are you serious? Thanks for the heads up...if my car is lowered they will give me bolts as a part of the charge for fixing negative camber? Let me know please thanks.

Mercedes-Benz of Valencia will swap in factory camber bolts, but if your car is as low as it looks in those photos, *I think* you’ll be wasting your money. The factory camber bolts won't do the job. That car looks like it needs slotted ball joints. K-Mac might have a kit for you.

I just had my alignment done by the dealer in Anaheim Hills, CA. Originally, I was quoted $89. After that, depending on if it needed Camber bolts, and depending on how many it needed, it could run as high as $265. When I was waiting in the waiting room, I was thinking for sure they were going to run up the bill (pretty bad camber problem/what we expect from the stealership. Turns out, to my surprise, they charged me $89 and said that they were able to get the alignment within spec without putting in the longer bolts. good deal.
