Elongating Front Camber Slots

Has anyone tried elongating the slots in the strut towers to get more camber?

My alignment shop did it. If you do make sure you install reinforcement plates on the struts as a precaution

I wouldn't do that. you'll be messing with the structural rigidity of the strut towers. If you can afford it, buy some camber plates. they're pricey, but at least it'll be done the right way. Plus you'll get more camber than you ever would by just elongating the holes.

Not worth it IMO, but possible. Dont know how much you would get before you hit the side of the strut mount.

Just save up and get camber plates. Expensive but worth every penny. I LOVE my vorshlag plates.
