    I took some measurements and had a friend waterjet a template for me to use for opening them up with a hole saw on my ‘15. Main driver was similar, I wanted to be able to adjust camber without having to drop the strut.

    Didn’t take any pics during the process but here’s what it looks like (I unbolted the strut and attached with nuts and bolts from underneath):

    Cut baby cut, the hole will be elongated..I think Sal Molinare actually has a jig for this. I can't find a pic, but I know I have posted it up before. You basically mark what you need and die grind it out like Voodoo boss mentioned. You will cut through part of the "lip" but it won't matter.

    Thanks all. I have received many suggestions and half of them actually address my needs. Special thanks to @gtorpedo for the winning idea.
