    Camber bolts hitting the strut (body) Mount

    So I've run into a slight problem, my Apexi N1 dampeners that I picked up are not fitting into the body because the strut hole is too small, I'm sure someone has run into this problem before. Is it safe to cut the body to allow camber adjustment bolts to fit properly?
    Post pictures if possible, would be a great help.

    This post is highly confusing. Can you post a picture of the problem or describe it differently?

    The camber adjustment bolts that are not in the picture are hitting the bottom of the strut tower. Sorry that's the best picture I have right now

    You can cut that hole to fit, cut as little as possible. We're those made for a Saturn? I'm assuming not.

    You are trying to fit N1 dampers into stock strut bodies?

    Looks like he got some wrx coilovers, and is trying to put them in a turd. When I did mine I didn't have to cut the strut hole in the body. I just used the two bolt holes closest to each other.

    That's what i was thinking, but with the brand he specified, they may not clear.

    I really don't wanna cut the strut body, but what choice do I have right?
    Those AMR's sound lovely, too bad the exchange rate is bunk.

    Then just don't cut it, and just use the range of camber adjustment that is left. You should still be able to get ~3.5 degrees with a slotted hole on bottom and a camber bolt on top.

    Its not as ideal as adjusting at the top mount, but it will do the trick.

    You could also space the top plate down just enough to clear your bolt heads.
