camber adjustment

Hoping someone can help. I have a uk my00 and recently had it aligned. The thing is one the print out is shows the front left camber at -0:56deg and right at 0:05 deg , can the camber angles be changed on standard suspension and should they have done it in the alignment?

quite possible as the main man just happened not to be there on the day I went, even though I called ahead. Have spoken to them and am going back this week to get it sorted. What sort of price should I have expected ??

I would expect that before getting it done - but not afterwards. Are you sure they did anything?

Shocking that people can charge for doing b***er all.

Went back to get it sorted they hadn`t adjusted camber originally , no explaination why. but were still unable to adjust as bolts were seized in place.

camber should be within .3 degrees of each other. an aftermarket adjuster may need to be installed
