From the pics of the struts, I would think any bend in the left strut would be more obvious in order to explain such a difference in camber, left to right.

Per M4_GTS' original recommendation, I would "Take it to a body shop and see if they can get it on the frame rack to take measurements."

Good Luck.

Don't the 2wd struts protrude lower at the bottom of the knuckle? OP appears to note x-drive, but strut in pic appears to be for 2wd.

Those are definately xdrive struts. The 2wd struts protrudes way more.

Sew my post in this thread to see the comparison.

They are the correct (AWD) struts for the car. I've got an appt at a body shop to take measurements this coming Friday the 21st, I'll report back then.

Hey, sorry for the lack of updates, long story short the issue was caused by a bent front passenger strut. I replaced the strut and for good measure I also replaced the knuckle, bearing, and both control arms on the passenger side.

While I was at it I also installed Eibach lowering springs and shorter bump stops but haven't had a chance to get a good picture of everything installed. Looks wicked with the spacers and rides like a dream now.
