F30 negative front camber
Hi guys, need some help please Bluebiggrin

Just got a 2013 F30 320D MSport.smile bounce

I noticed the camber off on the front right side tyre (tyre is worn bad on inner) , so I changed the LCA as it was slightly bent , still no change. dunno anymore See alignment figures below.[Image: camber_5252902398.jpg]

Also noticed the shock 'further lower' about 3mm into the holder, knuckle thing at the bottom (not sure if that's called stub axle).Hammerhead

I went to Motorvision PTA and they say the strut is bent and they can straighten it and this will fix it. Not sure if the shock mount could also have gotten damaged.

Anyone with similar issues - noted the shocks are weak. Please help me ...

RE: F30 negative front camber
I've had the camber go out of range on a few of my cars in the past. I had them straightened. Apparently there is a risk in damaging the strut, but it worked for me.

Oh I also had the alignment guy loosen the upper strut nuts and pulled on the strut, then re-tightened in order to bring the camber back into range.

RE: F30 negative front camber
Did they try to adjust the camber on that wheel, is it at the end of adjustment?

Do F30's have camber adjustments?
