over the weekend, i replaced both lower control arms along with a tie rod and afterwards, i noticed severe positive chamber in the front wheels. I was wondering what would cause this and how to fix it? I heard the chamber adjustments were not adjustable in the stock form. Would taking it to alignment shop fix the problem? I have a 2004 lexus rx 330.

I understand the tie rod would affect toe, and that's fine becasue toe would be adjustable through the tie rod itself.

The control arms affect all aspects of alignment. You must ALWAYS get an alignment after removing the control arms.

Can camber be adjusted? I always heard only toe can be adjusted.
