crash bolts? We cant be talking about that much camber change, I haven't seen much camber change in jounce or droop with these cars (or much at all with most mac strut cars since the instant center is at infinity because the link's dont intersect, blah blah blah more engineering stuff, lol. If you cant tell I just read the suspension section of the bible and am working on designing the rear suspension for the racecar). I'm sure just larger ovals in the struts would give you enough adjustment.

none. i'm going to start with finding the biggest meatiest tires i can find and find out how much/if any that changes the height/stance. it'll be a little while before i can change all four. if it raises it enough i may leave well enough alone. i really only want it to be able to get around close as good as an awd car would be able to in the mud/snow.
So a strut spacer between the strut mount and the body seem to be the best route for this. 2-3" lift seems to be about the max someone should go with spacers. The half shafts and the front end seems to be getting into some interesting geometry if you go much higher than that. You could get another inch or two by spacing the engine cradle with spacers, but the trans mount may need to be tweaked.
The rear starts to get close to the front of the rear quarters if you go much more than 3-4". But that is a hell of a lift if you ask me.
