Nope. Camber and caster adjustment is done by shims between the arms and their brackets on the subframe, same as stock. The nuts are loosened, shims are added or subtracted as needed by dropping them over the bolts, then the nuts are tightened.
The adjustment is great for circle-track, but they run some rather extreme settings that would destroy street tires. Their settings can get so far from stock that shimming isn't adequate.
