Exclamation camber problem ???????

hi everyone, got back from the garage the other day trying to have the 4 wheel aligning done to my e36 but the problem is that they said they couldnt do this job because the camber was out on the front wheels of the car (so they couldnt go off them) the mechanics could not do this themselves cause apparantly there is no camber ajustment on the front of the bmw ??????? how do i solve this problem ??????? HELP !!!!!!

I had the same problem with my 325is, check out these 2 links, first on is to adjust the front, second is adjustable camber arms for the rear. Turner Motorsport | BMW*E36*Turner Motorsport Camber Plates

Do you have any mods done to your suspension? I would be looking at other problems if you are stock. If you are not what's your setup?

no mods as such i put on some secondhand replacement 318 suspension on the other day and i saw that they were a set of bilsteins so was happily surprised i have replaced the lower control arms as well from a newer car looking at the steering rack off an s reg soon but was stuck trying to get the 4 wheel aligning done because of the camber problem

Ok, so you have a 318i/is? You replaced the suspension with used components from the same model i/is? Meaning if you have a i you replaced it with components from an i... also is your car or the donor car(s) a 92 year model? If so are both/all a 92?

I think you will be masking the problem by putting on camber plates. These cars with a correct stock setup do not need camber plates to correct camber, only to add.
