Camber plates for the fount dont seem to be available for the first gen escorts. Moog does sell a strut mount that can/remove camber PN k8574, but it dose not seem like a all to adjustable friendly option.
What about slotting the two outer bolt hols on the strut tower and sifting the whole strut/spring?
Like in the photo below?

There is only one bolt on the bottom strut mount.
I did think about camber bolts but want something stronger.

Camber bolts work just fine, so does slotting the strut mount holes or the slotting the holes in the strut where it mounts to the knuckle. The only issue with these is that if you ever have to undo said bolts then you will most likely need an alignment.

thanks. I think slotting and a slight lowering should get me were I want it.

I used THIS on my 90, and it works really well. I was able to dial out all of the positive camber, and add some caster at the same time. It was a very worthwhile purchase. At the time, they were available on rockauto.com, but I guess they no longer stock any.
