quick 4matic alignment question

Hey guys, I have a 2009 e550 4matic. I lowered it and need to get the eccentric bolts for the front to get the camber back closer to where it needs to be. My question is, will the standard eccentric bolts work (are they compatible with both the 4matic and the rwd models? Or do I need a different eccentric bolt kit for the front 4matic?

Thanks in advance!!

I recommend getting a new bolt kit. That my personal opinion though. Re-using the old one shouldn't be an issue i would think however i wouldn't be able to sleep at night knowing old parts such as suspension bolts are being used again...

Sorry for the confusion. I meant are the standard rwd model and the 4matic the same bolts? I ordered the new eccentric bolts. We shall see if they work or not next week.

Actually from further research it appears to be the same bolt.
