There are two senerios, possibilities for adding + camber by moving
the strut top outboard.
1. Move the stock strut outboard until the upper spring perch hits
the tower, about a ⅜” gain.
Easy way to achieve this is to slot the tower mounting holes by this
much, easily done by dropping but not removing the strut. BTDT.
2. Move the strut tube outward within the spring perch. A whole new
strut top end is required. Someone has an expensive kit to accomplish
this. No BTDT.
