I have a quick question about GS rules and I am not sure if this modification to get some extra camber is legal or not. Please let me know your thoughts.

Basically there is some camber adjustment in the strut tower but a guide pin for vehicle assembly must first be removed. Below is an article that shows some pictures and more detail. Would this be a violation of the GS rules?

I would think as long you arenít making any new holes via drilling and the original mount points are there then it should be legal, I know camber adjustments are allowed in GS I just think you cant make adjustments to the body to create camber.

Iím under the impression that Civics have factory-allowed camber bolts for such adjustments.🤔

The 10th gen civic does not have camber adjustment other than what I showed above. If there was another way to get more camber I would find it, trust me tongue.gif .

Aha! Sounds like they went to the VW and Mazda3 strut attachment style. No bolts on the bottom attaching the strut.

Darn them.

Too bad. 😢

Not legal unless it's a factory authorized method of adjustment. If it in the FSM?

It is in the FSM. Sadly its for a whopping .31 degrees of camber correction in either direction on the SI. Better than non I guess
