Holy crap this is getting expensive and laborious.
I don't know much about the alignment but spindles can easily be bent by an accident. Aluminum, steel, reinforced, it doesn't matter.
Looks like it could be bent. When I did my .:R36 Spindles, my camber was always equal.
Granted, I could adjust that with my Top Hats, but when I watched my shop adjust it, they were both literally in the same spot.
Only other thing I can think of is your subframe not sitting properly. You mentioned that one side had too little and one side had too much?
No panic, Sir. :biggrin:
Included angle simply is SAI + camber, and it's the camber which is little off.
Remember that shop didn't do a good job, obviously on the first two align-
ments. So don't overestimate both the alignment sheet and their opinion.
I'd bet there are at least some improvements possible by shifting subframe
and and rear bush bracket. You guess it - the Tyrolsport collars do impede
this correction work.
I'd consider looking for another alignment shop and of course removing
the collars. First, just see if this makes alignment better. If so, you may
buy new bolts (Audi/Passat + shims) later.
Anything is possible. Even the collars could be putting the subframe 'precisely' off-center, which is why Bruce suggested taking them out to see if it can be aligned properly.
