Old Man Emu 4" Suspension Lift

I just bought myself a new 2012 jk and the new Old Man Emu complete lift kit. I am about to install it but I a friend just told me that it uses cam bolts (I think that what he called them). What are these? What are they used for? Will they work? If not, what is my best solution?

cam bolts are used to adjust the camber of the front axle alternative would be aev's control arm drop brackets

Cam bolts adjust the caster.

cam bolts are fine i think the brackets are better but cam bolts are fine some people swear wheel spacers are dangerous and come loose although i have never heard anyone say it has happened to them

Well other than the cam bolts, does the lift kit that I am interested in look nice?

I'm curious about the 'complete lift kit'. My OME lift kit came with adjustable front lower control arms among other things. What kit did you get? and from where?
