Can you not easily change the camber adjustment at the place where the strut bolts to the top of the steering knuckle. But once you change it, you would need to re-do the toe-in adjustment; or your tires might wear out a lot faster on one side of the tread.

Im curious why you want to have more negative camber?

I think you may be able to eyeball it and tell which way the camber is going. In other words I think by looking at the top mount after turning it you should be able to tell whats happening, since it will be closer to one side then the other. Make a mental note of how it looks when its pointed in the OE location, then turn and see what happens. I cant find any info about which way to turn it or how much it will effect it so thats just my suggestion to try, since I cant find any info on it. Or go to a shop with an alignment rack and ask maybe? There computer should tell them how it works.

Increases the camber by 0.5 degrees as in it becomes more negative?

How do you go about adjusting this, cuz i could use more camber for autocrossing. Last alignment spec i have say i'm at:
LF: -1.3 camber / 2.8 caster
RF: -1.1 camber / 2.7 caster
LR: -1.0 camber
RR: -1.6 camber

I'm thinking if i could play with these might be a good band-aid till i can get the suspension setup i really want.

This is exactly why you don't need MORE negative camber, buddy. By nature of the suspension design on these cars, as you lower them, negative camber occurs on it's own.

You probably already have 2 degrees or so, which is way high for a daily driven car.
