Yes I had the exact same problem.
Race Marque Systems (who installed my shocks) made me a nifty replacement device to adjust my shocks.
I then swapped my camber plates around to give me more neg camber, but what happened is that even the tool they gave me wouldn't fit anymore.

The solution to this is very simple: move the steering wheel all the way to one end. You'll see that one of the shock towers will move forward, to give you enough clearance to adjust your Konis.

When I originally had Koni struts installed in my M Roadster I couldn't use the included adjustment tool. On my car the top of the strut was too close to the lip of the hole in the fender to allow the Koni tool to fit on the end of the strut. I have since changed strut bearings to the KMAC pieces and there now is enough room to get the tool on the strut (although I lost some castor since the top of the strut moved forward). But I am curious if anyone else has the same problem that I had?
