My '55 has slight positive camber on the front nearside. It's a corner that has been in an accident in the past, so obviously the repairers didn't straighten everything out 100%... but I've had constant abnormal tyre wear on that corner (inner shoulders) so I've also been trying ways to solve such a problem.
My (untested.. since the car is off the road for new subframe bushes) is to put a slots in the damper mounting holes (where the bolts go) so that you can rotate the hub mount outwards so that the hub is in a more "upright" position than how it naturally wants to fit (bearing in mind "how it wants to fit" is positive camber).
So.. .you're essentially converting your car to have adjustable camber.
I dunno if it works, how much slot to make and whether it'll stay in place or keep needing re-adjustment.. but it's the only idea I've had which doesn't involve putting the body in a jig and working out which part is a few millimeters out..
From memory I think you have to put the slot in the lower damper mounting hole, elogated inwards... the hub mounting can then be rotated away from you, pivoting on the top mounting hole (which has to stay "round") to move the hub closer to vertical.
No bullets for Chaingun..
