Boss 302 DIY camber adjust.

Well , we are in full lock down around Ont. and I'm going a little stir crazy! I decided to go old school and see how much camber I could get with stock boss suspension . So did a simple re drill of the upper strut bolts. I figured I could move inboard 5/8 " with no issues.

I did both sides. Had a chance to get it to my mechanic today for a alignment and was pleasantly surprised at the results. We were shocked that the toe and caster was so close and didn't need adjustment. and I'm happy with -3 on the camber for what I do. !!

I can go between the two sets of holes easily but will probably just leave it because hardly drive the car now....mostly just at the track .😎

Nice job, and good result. Was the limiting factor the spring perch hitting the side of the tower or the strut shaft hitting the side of the clearance hole?

The strut studs/nuts are getting close the rise in the mounting flange where it bends up. ( the two studs on the right in the first pic) there's still room in the between the spring perch and tower and the clearance hole could be easily filed/dremeled open more to the inbound side. I never thought it could be so easy to get -3 degree camber.
