Default Alignment Front Camber Help

Hi, I just replaced the front cv axles, hubs, control arms (including ball joints), tie rods inner and outer, sway bar links, and struts on my 2011 outback. Got new tires and an alignment done. Left front camber is out of spec, and the alignment shop tells me that they have adjusted the camber as much as they can (supposedly). What would be causing this? Is there anyway I can fix this? I wonder if a new camber bolt would help, or if there is any other way to get more camber adjustment. Please advise!!! I've included a link to the alignment print out.

Actually the left front number is a good one at -0.7. I would have them to try and get the right side to match.
The additional negative camber will greatly help reduce under steer.
As long as the toe is at zero, the extra negative camber will not wear out your tires excessively at all
Toe kills tires not camber, unless its excessive.

With all those components replaced there should be no problem getting your camber in spec and matching side to side. (camber numbers should be the same on both sides)
The only two things that would cause your issue is the shop doesn't know what they are doing or the car has been in a wreck and not properly repaired.
BTW: you link doesn't work, so I can't see what the caster sweep results are but as Bikelok says -0.7 is not bad at all.
