How to adjust front camber...is it adjustable?

Just curious if it's possible to adjust a bit of negative camber into the stock ride height. On my wrx it was easy to achieve by loosening the lower arm-to-strut bolts and rotating the upper eccentric bolt.

Any such adjustment on the Accord?

No! You will find that Honda as well as other car builders thought that being able to adjust Caster and Camber was not needed. You can adjust the toe front and rear but thats about it. You could try Hondas suggested quick fix and shift the subframe over. OR as I will be doing next week, paying through the A-- for front Caster/Camber units and Rear camber units. Because my friend Honda could care less.

I have a print out from my recent alignment that said my camber WAS out .22.. so I am going to have to disagree with the previous poster. I belive the upper control arm provies a verry slight adjustment, not enough for larger wheels or lowering.. but enough to adjust from daily driving pot holes.

All you can do is "set the toe and let it go"

The front should be fully adjustable from what I understand. When I dropped our 06 and brought it to the alignment shop, they had no problem adjusting camber. I did have to add a camber kit for the rears though...

In fact CA05, why not just lower it? Instant negative camber all around...

As stated, only toe can be adjusted. The front is not fully adjustable.

This is correct.

You'll get .25 may be up to .50 degrees out of the natural play in the bolt hole.
