Suspension Alignment questions

Hey y'all

was creating a service and purchase history book for my car and was taking a look at my previous alignment sheet from back in June. I had gotten an alignment since I hadn't had one since getting the car, as well as I had replaced my lower control arms, swapped wheels and added spacers, so thought it might have been time for one

On the service receipt, it said "Further parts replacement required to correct camber issue" Having a look at the alignment values post-fix, it seems just the driver side front is just

. It's not something I am actually worried about since driving the car the past few months there hasn't been a reason for me to be concerned.

So onto the actual question, What needs to be replaced or what can I do to sort of fix this myself?

Is this something I should be concerned about?

Thanks in advance y'all!

0'30'' degrees is not a big issue, but tbh it's the passenger one that should be fixed to have (at least) -0'30'', these cars are not fun to drive with zero camber :-/

It sounds like you might benefit from K-Mac's front adjustable camber bushing.

Ha ha I agree lol!

The car has been much better to drive since replacing the leaking lca's but I know it could be better, like you said, with just a tad more camber!!

Not sure about xdrive as I have rwd. Try to contact them and see. Sorry I couldn't be any help.

If the control arms have the same part number I would assume so. Another way to know is if the mounting part has the same dimensions.
