Default Town Fair Tire Problems

Havent had an alignment in about 1.5 years so when I went to switch my winter tires for my summer (hankook radial k106 205/55/16) I had one done b/c it was 20 bucks more to do. Why not right? That was in april of this year. I do an oil change a few days ago and check the tread on the tires only to find very worn inside shoulders on the FL and FR. BR and BL are also worn but not as much.

Bring the car to a friend at another TFT center. Tells me that nothing can be done about it because that wear resulted from banging on the road which changed the camber (more negative I believe). I tell him that all was fine before the alignment and give hime the print out they gave me of what they did (before and after). He still sticks to his theory that its from road use in the past 3 months. Also goes on to say that the front camber on MY04 WRX sedans CANNOT be adjusted. Hmmm is that right, didn't seem right to me. He recommends I purchase aftermarket camber bolts for from and rear. Oh yea, I am lowered on prodrive springs too.

So I'm like WTF just change what was done to what it was since I was fine for well over a year!!

So yea, wanted to rant and see if anyone knew if adjusting camber was possible and if I need camber bolts. Seems like crap to me. Any info would be sweeeeet. Thanks

Front camber is most certainly adjustable. And without us knowing what your alignment numbers are, it's pretty much impossible to say whether it's an alignment issue or not. So what does the print out say?
