Camber bolts

Hello,


After replacing the U joint from steering column had to redo the steering geometry, couldnt be done because lower control arms bolts are seized/rusted. Replaced all the control arms and then I received the information that the camber bolts from the control arm in which the springs sit are also seized and the arms need to be changed. Problem is I got the information the arms come in 1 month and I shouldnt drive the car. Question is cant I just change the bolts and bushings ?

So after changing the lower control arms where the springs sit and the geometry angles are spot on, was told one of the rear right springs is broken and they welded it. They wrote it should be changed with a orange+purple spring. I want to change both rear springs but cant find on any website the description orange+purple only get rear springs for example from monroe or kyb rear spring. Is it the same colour code for the left side ?

I've never heard of colour coded leaf springs.

Its a Pathfinder, same camber bolts front and rear.
The NP300 yes has rear springs, pointless and a not really fit for purpose on a supposed work truck Np300, with what is a solid rear axle, if you didn't know, commonly known as Live axle.

I wouldn't worry about colour coded springs, unless you want to go heavy duty, get new standard ones. Or heavy duty ones like these.
