M3 Camber issue! PLZ HELP!!!!!

I have tried everything I know of other then taking it to the stealership! My drivers side front tire has A LOT of negative camber and it is only that one tire! I bought the car like this.

You can tell some from the photo but the picture doesn't really do the camber problem justice.


Everything I can think of to check is the exact same on both front tires but for some reason the driver side is very negative. The springs, tires, struts, everything is the same.

I have changed out the bushings and control arms on both sides. Adjusted the tightness on the wheel hub. Messed with the toe-in and toe-out adjustments and nothing seems to have any real effect on that tire.

Does anyone have any idea what could be causing ONLY this one tire to have negative camber and be unchangeable? The car has a clean title and no unusual bends or warps in the frame from what I can tell.



I am going to have to sell the car in the next week or so if I can't figure this out!!
PLEASE HELP ME!!!

Do you think if I installed these it would fix my problem? -->

And the car appears to have had a slight collision to the front bumper and headlight before I owned it but, like I said, the frame and everything else looks fine.

I guess the accident was on the same side where the excessive tyre wear is?
Chassis damage? Linkage Damage?
What angle was the impact (If you can get this info) ?
Deffo strut needs changing but, worst case scenario is the she needs to be placed on a Jig to check her dimensions !
