Do I need a camber kit for the coilovers I want to put on? It didn't come with adjustable pillow mounts, so I thought maybe the knuckle had an oblong hole for the adjustment?
Just did a search and the fronts have a bolt in the lower control arm and the bracket is slotted. Not sure if it will be enough. Curious about the rear tho.

I was gonna ask a similar question. Does anyone now if the Cts camber can be adjusted in the rear. I went to Firestone for an alignment and they said they don't do camber adjustments on a Cts.

From what I have found on the net the rear should be adjustable also. It is the same as the front. It is done by loosening the lower control arm and moving it in a slot where it bolts. You should be able to take a look under your car and see if you have a slot there. I haven't checked yet cause we have too much snow to go rolling around on the ground lol.
There is a thread from the LS1 forum. You can see the slot on the pic of the front. There is none on the rear but apparently the V doesn't have it in the rear, the reg CTS should have it. I just haven't been able to check. If its nice in your area maybe you can go take a look for both of us lol. I have read that depending on how low we lower the car, you may have to remove the LCA and make that slot a little longer to get the camber close to zero!

Re: Camber kit?
And why would you want to put your camber close to zero? Presumably you're putting coilovers on the car because you want to improve handling, in which case near zero camber is a step in the wrong direction.'05 Stealth Grey CTS-V, 19x8.5/10" CCW T140s with Toyo Proxes T1 Sports (summer), black Team Dynamics ProRace 1.2 wheels with 275/35-18 R-compounds (track), Hyperblack Rota Torques (winter), KW Variant3s, V2 front brakes, Hotchkis rear sway bar, EPS cam, TEA-ported 243 heads, FAST92 intake w/LS2 TB, JBA Camaro/G8 1-3/4" shorty headers w/JBA cat pipes, Corsa exhaust, UUC motor and tranny mounts, UUC shifter, MAPerformance trailing arms, Specter cradle bushings, etc...
