Default Positive camber on the front 94 classic

Hi all, I have a 94 classic and I think something may be wrong with the camber settings.
The front N/S has loads of positive camber which is causing outside tyre wear. The adjustable shock mount bolt is adjusted giving max negative camber but still shows as positive with the car at its current ride height. However the O//S front is fine, everything looks the same underneath, wishbones etc are all in near perfect condition since it was a JDM import.
The rear O/S has lots of negative camber and what appears to be toe out. Haven't investigated the rear yet.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,

Evan.

Just because arms and shocks look good doesnt mean someone has hit a kerb at some point and bent something.

Yeah I guess so, but all looks good under there. Are there any other things I should be looking out for? I think i'll have to get some aftermarket camber bolts then along with coilovers I might be able to achieve the correct camber setting.

I'd be looking at the front wishbone first for damage. The alloy arms hide damage well.

I had a look over the wishbones and it seems fine compared to the O/S/F. Also I didn't think castor on the front was adjustable as standard? I haven't had it Geometry setup or tested but I can see the camber looks really off on the mentioned wheels.

Ahhh I see I haven't taken any measurements as of yet. Where are the best reference points?
