    Alright, so if I wanted to get my camber in about 2*-2.5* or so at stock height, how would I go about doing this? I thought about just getting a camber kit and trying to install the bushings in backwards, but I don't think there's enuff room back there without having to notch out the back wall of the strut tower(?) Any ideas? Thanx :)

    why do you want to do that? so you'll need a new pair of tires every month?

    I thought I'd REALLY put those aircraft grade titanium balljoints to the test... :p

    I autox in stock class and my regional rules allow wheel alignment adjustments, just not suspension height alterations, so I can't lower it to get the -camber i need for the track. Plus next year I plan on having my car lowered for the street, but when I get to the track I'll have to crank it back up to stock height. Then I'll really have to get the camber back in.
    Any ideas?

    cranked back up or not, you still have modified suspension, and you will get bumped

    camber plates? All I've seen for my car are the offset bushings (which provide for + camber adjustments, not - ). I've seen the slotted mount-type balljoints, but I don't think those are made for my car(?). What are these camber plates?

    apparently in my regional stock classes you can have adjustable spring perches installed, you just have to use the stock springs (which i'm not happy about but better than nothing i guess...).
