Suspect a separated ball joint but that will only affect one wheel. Here are the specs

Caster - 0 Frame Angle [1]
Left Hand. 4.0 1.0
Right Hand. 4.4 1.0
Total/split. -0.4 0.7

Camber
Left Hand. -0.5 0.7
Right Hand. -0.5 0.7
Total/split. 0.0 0.7

Total Toe @ Curb Ride Height [2]. 0.06 0.25

Wheel Track. 30.6 mm (1.22 inch)

Dogtracking - Max. (Centerline Of Front
Tires Compared To Centerline Of Rear Tires). 30 mm (1.2 inch)

Clear Vision (Negative Value Is Counterclockwise). 2.4 3.0

Ride Height
Front
Original Parts. 102 mm (4.08 inch) 15 mm (0.6 inch)
Replacement Parts. 102 mm (4.08 inch) 15 mm (0.6 inch)
Rear. 178-227 mm (7.12-9.08 inch)

Vehicle Lean (Side-to-Side Height Differences)
Front Wheel Opening. 16 mm (0.64 inch)
Rear Wheel Opening. 20 mm (0.8 inch)

[1] If vehicle is higher in the rear, add the frame angle to the measured caster. If vehicle if lower in the rear, subtract the frame angle from the measured caster. Compare the total to the specification.
[2] Positive value is toe-in, negative value is toe-out.

The camber adjuster is built into the top ball joint, any adjustment must be made on an alignment machine as the settings are far to fine for the eye to see.

Hi there,

You will need to get a wheel alignment done, this is not possible to do this by eye.
