Camber Adjustments (Kits?)

I autocross my SLK55 and I'm looking into options for increasing negative camber in the front. The tires are rolling over too much and I'm having to raise tire pressures to prevent from rolling over the sidewall. Otherwise, the car feels great.

Does anyone know if the front camber angle of the SLK55 can be adjusted from the factory at all? If so, what is the maximum angle I could ask for with an alignment? If not, does anyone know of any reputable camber kits?

Thank you.

Here's a couple pictures from today's event.

You can get a camber kit from a company in Australia called K-MAC
I got a set for the rear of mine when i fitted the eibachs and im pretty sure that user Durkatlon has both front and rear fitted.

Yes I *had* front and rear K-MAC fitted actually. The fronts were later replaced by stock bushings again because of some other repair work that had to be performed in that area. They work great though, and I still have my rear kit to keep the camber within spec.
