G35 coupe
Toe and camber issue

I have a 2005 g35 coupe and I just replaced some suspension parts this week such as lower ball joints, upper control arms, sway bar end links and passenger side outer tie rod(replaced driver side already). My cars not lowered and not planning on it so I just went with durolast parts from autozone. But went to get an alignment and the guy from the shop was not able to get the front passenger side camber in spec I know there is no adjustments but can any other part be going bad to effect this?
but my bigger issue is the toe in the rear passenger side is way off spec. He said eccentric toe bolt is worn out and keeps slipping is that possible they can get worn out?
Also Found out the last owner put on after market camber bars didnít get a close look but looked like the spcís but the eccentric bolts looked like stock and everything else on the car suspension is stock and I have the stock 19in rims and Iím about to hit 140,000 miles

The aftermarket camber rods in the back should have an eccentric lockout bolt (square washer looking thing) installed because you wouldn't need eccentric bolts on it anymore. The toe bolts (ones at the inboard side of the rear spring perch) will need to be replaced from the OEM unit to the SPC or other aftermarket ones that allow an additional 1 degree +/- of adjustment.

Eccentric bolts can definitely wear out, it happens when people either overtorque and strip the threads on the nut a little or when people try to make adjustments without having the vehicle on sliders so there is too much friction and it puts too much stress on the eccentric, however the OEM ones are REALLY stout and this shouldn't happen. Aftermarket ones are all a bit flimsy because they just use a flattened edge on the bolt whereas the OEM ones have an additional groove cut into the bolt and a matching pin in the washer side.

So would I need the spc bolts for the toe even though Iím all stock other than the SPC Camber arm (previous owener put on) or just an oem replacement. And does it hurt to have the adjustable camber arms with the oem eccentric bolt?

Sounds like all you need if you're at stock height are stock components. But SPC would give you more adjust ability in case you ever wanted to lower. And there's no problem with adjustable arms and OEM bolts, that's what I'm running currently (at stock height)

Usually worn bushings, ball joints, and wheel bearings.

If you like the car and want to keep it, just rebuild the whole front suspension with Whiteline, poly bushings and Mevotech Supreme, Moog, or any other quality brand components of your choice and never worry about tire wear or suspension clunks ever again, plus it'll feel 100x better when you're cornering hard.

Search Google for G35driver results regarding what components need to be replaced.

Grab a set off a vehicle at a pick-n-pull. Those bolts aren't G35 specific, they're used on pretty much every Nissan/Infiniti and will probably fit.

I got one from the Nissan dealer, which was a few bucks cheaper than the Infiniti dealer - I believe I paid $7 for the eccentric bolt and another 6ish for the eccentric washer?
