shock tower modifications

i have just finished rebuilding my steering rack and decided to lower the front end my 82 911sc. brought it down to 25" and it looks correct. i took it for a 4-wheel alignment and they raised the front end up to 27" to get it to their spec's!
i asked the tech why he did this and his reply was that to get to 0' (no camber) this is what he had to do. he stated that i can grind the alignment holes on the shock tower outward by 1/2",enlarging the adjustable area and that i can then lower the car and keep the alignment within spec's. has anyone ever done this or heard of this being done?

sounds like a bent spindle. I bet the problem was not the same on both sides.

I just went through this with my 82. You can slot out the 3 shock mounting holes but you won't gain much clearance because of the upper shock mount it is very close to the edge of the opening to begin with. I just left my camber at -3deg. I'll eat up tires quicker but hey.
I am also looking into an adjustable upper shock mount but they run around 400$ each.

Electrical problems on a pick-up will do that to a guy- 1990C4S
