Camber question on my Lowered suspension

AS most of you know I finally lowered my car I used H&R Springs and Bilstein shocks and Wow am I satisfied ! I have yet had the time since I just did it yesterday to take it and get it realigned. I think if im not mistaken I have a negative Camber problem in the rear. Its more noticable on the passenger side than the drivers side but they may be about the same , Is that normal after installing H&R springs ? The guy at turner motorsport told me I wouldnt have to worry about Camber after this is installed but while standing from the rear I think it is leaning in a little from the top of the tire/wheel. Will it fix itself when I get it aligned or do yall have any ideas on what I can do to fix this problem? Hope thats not to long just trying to get enough info !
Is this something I need to fix because I dont want my tires to wear fast !

I have done the same on my 93 325is. I had the same camber problem also. My tires were wearing pretty bad but that was because my alignment was off. Took it in and had it aligned now its much better. The camber wont cause your tires to wear as much as the toe in&out will. Just keep an eye on them.

your car has some negative camber from the factory, lowering it only increases it, you can purchase ajdustable lower control arms to reduce or eliminate the negative camber, but you'll be fine w/o them

getting an alignment won't do anything, there is little to no adjustment stock, if you really want it back to normal you'll need to get adjustable lower control arms, and camber plates up front, I say you just leave it, because sport springs don't drop it enough to make adjustable control arms necessary
