Doesn't work by shear, it is tension. (edited)

Response to Has Anyone Used Camber Wedges or Camber Eccentric Bolts? (edited)

But the larger bolt can hold more tension than the smaller one.

The stock bolt is a M10x1.25, and I assume the one supplied with the wedge is M8x1.25.

ASSUMING that the M8 is the same gade as the M10, the M8 will be ~45% weaker in tension.

Tension here will relate back to clamping force betwen the strut tube ears and the top of the knuckle (ie: what keep the camber fixed in place)
