slotting the strut towers

To slot the 3 holes in the tower for the 8mm studs holding the strut  
top bearing plate one must drop the strut assembly lower in the tower  
for round file access. The strut assemblies need not be removed from  
the tower just dropped down for file access. One can only gain about  
¼” or 5/16” by this slotting before the upper spring seat hits the  
tower side wall, but do move the strut until this contact occurs.  
This is not much of a positive camber addition, ¼” in about 24”, but  
every little bit helps and a very simple mod. Apply your trig tables.
