Icon5 negative camber in the rear only on one side?

hey guys, just like the title says, my 4th gen has really noticeable negative camber on the right rear tire. the other tire is normal. The previous owner recently had non adjustable upper ball joints installed in the rear without buying a new control arm. I'm wondering if the lower ball joint is whats causing this problem. Is there any other component in the rear that would cause negative camber?

You would hear a loud knocking noise from a ball joint long before it made a visible difference to camber. It could be caused by worn bushes or something may be bent.

How bad is it? can you post pics?

Take it to a dedicated wheel alignment shop and have them measure it and align (if possible) before attempting anything else.

Is it visual, or are you just going from tyre wear? Because if it's just the tyre wear then it's probably more likely to be toe than camber causing the issue.

the rear subframe is movable on 4th gens if its off to one side this can happen .. i would first jack it up and check for play on both sides ... if no play is there you might have to have someone who knows what there doing move the rear subframe and do an alignment ..
