If I change the border on my google search box from the normal light gray to a 2px dark blue, is that ok or will I be banned from adsense? The javascript is supposed to override any changes to the search box, but I added the css "!important" to the border so it could not be changed. Thanks

If you've already modified the border you're already in violation.

Ad Behavior

AdSense code may not be altered, nor may the standard behavior, targeting or delivery of ads be manipulated in any way that is not explicitly permitted by Google. For instance, clicking Google ads may not result in a new browser window being launched.

I'd agree that it's in violation. Especially since you needed to override the code via !important..
