well, i have -1.5deg camber on driver front and -2.5deg on passenger frnt. and i dont have adj. camber plates. caster is 6.5 and 6.9 on driver and passenger front respectively. so its probably not strut. spindel might be slightly bent. but im gonna take it all out and take a look at. inside of passenger tire is worn down from camber i assume. i might just get new struts and a new spindel. any opinions or advice welcomed. tia!

usually the strut bends. JM

it is highly unusual for the spindle to bend 1/2 degree and the strut to bend 1/2 degree. Most likely the strut is bent 1 degree.
PS the e46M3 HAS adjustable camber plates, but they do not have 1 degree range of adjustment. Correcting a strut that is bent at the bottom by sliding the top will cause incorrect kingpin inclination (KPI) anyway.

tomorrow hopefully ariG
