how to adjust caster/camber on 03 CV ???

I went for an alignment today. The tec couldnt figure out how to adjust caster and or camber on my 2003 p71 CV. I see three bolts on the strut top, but when loosened i could not get the streut to move in any direction, even with help from a mallet and crowbar.

i see two large sloted holes with 2 large bolts, that appear to fastn the aluminum engine cross member to the frame. These were loosened but upper section of the aluminum corss member does not appear to be designed to slide in the slots.

any help on this?

The upper ball joints are bolt-on type and are secured with "cams" which provide for caster/camber adjustment. See pics here...

also, if your alignment shop didn't know that then you need to find a new alignment shop.
