Chris240: If i was running more camber it would be closer to the strut?
Nope, because the whole strut, kingpin and hub are one complete fixed assembly.
If you dial in more camber you are either moving the strut top inwards (to the centreline of the car) or spacing the lower control arm outwards, if your lucky enough to own one of those nice sets of AZC adjustable arms.
The space between the tyre and the strut will remain the same at all times.
There is only 3 ways i can think of to gain more space.
2. Different wheels with a lower offset (moves the whole wheel outwards)
3. Coil overs, then you get a narrower spring and perch, and hectic adjustability bro!
