Recently purchased 97 328is e36. When I brought it in for a tune up [BMW Allston] I learned that front camber was off. I was told that the camber on e36 is unadjustable, but it is within pass range. I notice a "drifting-pulling" when driving at highway speeds [80-90mph]. Is there any way to remidy this situation? Is camber truly "unadjustable"? If so could I replace camber/components alltogethar?

if your camber is off you can get a camber plates. but it sounds like your wheels are unaligned. go some where to get a 4 wheel alignment. if its still acting strange. you can get camber plates from turner, bavauto, ground control, motorforce, tckline......

When I had my car serviced a complete allignment was performed, that's how they determined the camber issue. I am happy to hear that I can replace it. I was worrying when they said that it was "unadjustable". Thanks.

If your car is lower you have more camber then originally.

But having slightly more camber doesn't make the car pull in any direction.
