    alignment on e30

    I just replaced front control arms and got an alignment done. The shop printed out the specs and I got some wierd numbers for rear toe and camber. Left rear camber is -2.5 right is -1.2. Left rear toe is -.08 (toe out) Right rear is .26 (toe in). Should I assume that I have a bent control arm or is it possible that worn bushings would cause this? The car seems to handle fine to me. Thanks for any help or opinions.

    something is definitely wrong in there. how old are all the bushings? if original, oh yeah, need to replace them all! both trailing arm and subframe. while in there put adjustable trailing arm bushings in so you can actually control the camber and toe.
