Thats better so its an E32 735i, Ok here we go, this will give you some intersting reading:
Timm's BMW E32 7-Series Repair And Information

When you get the car please explain the actual wheel tilt as top/ bottom in or out etc and I will do my best, please allow for the time difference as im in the Uk.

moved both threads to the 7 series forum, and merged them...

are you referring to the camber angle? BMWs tend to run higher camber angles than most cars
