Most technicians rely on the how to adjust section of the alignment machine software. The camber screw is not listed for the 5th Gen nor are the slots in the clevis. The camber screw is not available as a part for the 5th Gen. The use of the camber screw is not in the GM shop manual, or wasn't when last I checked. Slots in a strut are nothing new. Not all cars come with slots for camber adjustment. If they don't and experienced tech will create a slot. To save money, a lot of cars leave the factory without camber and caster adjustment. They have only toe.

Not only did Chevrolet leave out the camber screw, they installed fences for Caster adjustment with a round hole so it cannot be adjusted with grinding.
