How much camber can we squeeze out the front

I need to get an alignment tomorrow. Should I ask for max camber up front ? We can't get much but will that be any different? Also any recommendations on what settings I should get. Or just max camber up front and normal in the rear?

Can't add neg camber up front w/o removing the alignment pins from the strut mounts. I'm not sure if you can unscrew the pins w/o removing the strut assembly from the car. If you can't unscrew them, you can drill them out. This will get you approx. -.5 d camber up front; not much but it will improve turn in and reduce understeer a bit. Def. worth it imo.

I don't understand how to remove the pin. Can the place doing my alignment do it. I'm not much of a DIY person. Wheres a good DIy. I thought we could squeeze a little out without removing the pin

I don't have a picture of it but you can find one in this forum. I unscrewed my pins when the strut mounts were out of the car. If it's a performance oriented alignment shop, I'm sure they can figure it out.
