interesting, thanks!!
As it happens, I have a snapped bolt in the top of my adjustable camber Meister Rs. Apparently it was done up far too tight and the garage snapped it when trying to adjust. I wonder if I can JB weld another bolt to the remaining bolt in the hole to try and extract it..

I don't mind using JD weld to hold a bolt in place for the strut brace but because you have a snapped camber bolt I think the best thing to do is drill it out and get a replacement or ask Meister R for the bolt size.

I wouldn't like to see anything fail on you when driving!

So there are plenty of other bolts in on the camber adjustment, but this one annoys me. It also means it’s a strut-out job to remove due to lack of access - unless it can be extracted from above. I still think there’s a lack of space anyway so May have to go down the strut removal route.
