Does Brembo package have adjustable strut towers?

I desperately need some negative camber. I was about to order a set of MM's off the net, but I read somewhere that someone had seen the Brembo cars had adjustable strut towers from the factory. I've looked and searched, but I can't validate that. I went to the garage and I saw the strut towers on my car look like they may have a bit of adjustment, but I don't have the time till next week to throw it up on stands and mess with the settings.

Has anyone done this successfully with the stiffer suspension on the Brembo package? Thanks in advance.

They do allow for slight camber adjustments. I don't really know how much I just know that when I installed my lowering springs I didn't get the camber adjusted just right and it was off until I got my front end alignment done afterwards

Thanks. I'm going to try and tweak it all the way in next week. I can probably get another couple events out of the stock tires before I have to replace them if I can get some negative camber.

Anytime you lower a car, it is going to create negative camber. I have a 2012 Brembo and nothing is adjustable on it. You might want to try the Eibach camber bolts. You can install them to either create positive or negative camber for around $25.

My car isn't lowered, just need more negative camber for track stuff. The outside edges of my tires are about wrecked.

Then I would try the Eibach camber bolts.

Really? Everything I've read until your post has been completely 100% against camber bolts for track usage. I've been under the impression that for a show car they would be okay, but anything moreso would cause failure?

Re: Does Brembo package have adjustable strut towers?

So sorry, I went off the thread topic more than your first post. For a track car, I would scrap the entire factory suspension all together. If you are on a budget, the camber bolts would be the cheapest way to adjust the camber but may not be the most ideal situation for the demands of a track. If you can spend a little extra, go with caster camber plates. If you are a serious track guy, upgrade the suspension system.

Ah okay. No chance of getting enough camber out of the factory strut braces to offset the tire wear? I'm really actually digging the Brembo suspension, minus the nose dive upon braking.
