Modification question - offset bushings

Hi all! Just have a question about a particular mod I'm planning to make.

5.1.B.3 (non-stock alignment) states: Minor hardware (e.g. fastener and shim) changes are permitted. Modified camber/caster plates and/or upper control arms are permitted with any bushing material type under this paragraph provided installation is for the sole purpose of alignment adjustment. On lowered cars modification to an existing Panhard rod is permitted to compensate for the change in ride height.

I'm looking to put offset upper control arm bushings on the front of my RX8 to get some extra camber out of the front end. Is this modification permitted under 5.1.B.3?

My understanding is that you'd be 100% ok with that.

Offset Bushings are covered by Rule 5.1.B.3.
