Lowered, need control arm bolts for alignment

Good Day all,
I just lowered my 89 CRX. I need to move my camber positive by about 1 1/2 degrees. I know about upper ball joint kits, upper control arm kits and upper bushing kits that handle this nicely but the top of my tires are exactly flush with the edge of the fender which is a really nice thing. If I move the top of the wheel out to correct the camber the tire will be sticking out at least half an inch and possibly rub. I would rather move the bottom of the tire in. I've seen on some cars where you can get special bolts to replace lower control arm bolts that give a certain amount of camber change. I can't seem to find anything for the CRX though. The original bolt is 10X70. Anyone seen these for CRX or Civic/Acura?
Thanks!!
