no camber?
so i had my car looked at the other day because my wheel vibrates at high speeds, pulls to the right, and has extra play in the wheel. my problem seems to exist in the subframe, possiable control arm or cv joint. so the mechanic tells me our cars dont have camber adjustment, just toe in, toe out. he believes that my front passenger side wheel is moved slightly towards the back of the car and he cant adjust it. anybody have any suggestions?

find a new mechanic cause there is an adjustment bolt or how else would we be able to correct the camber? I just had mine done.

Hmm, well I just had my car lowered and they said because my car doesn't have cambers, I have to order a camber kit so that I don't wear out the tires. Good luck!

there is a small adjustment on the inside of the rear a arm, using an eccentric bolt, that can adjust for small drops, but for anything more, you need either the hotchkis link, or there is another company that has a different eccentric that is like $17 for smaller drops, for the front the celi does not have camber adjustments, camber on the front would be adjusted by the top of the mcpherson strut.

Ditto, that exactly describes what the mechanic showed me.
