Default Rear Diff Alignment/Adjustment?

Alright Suby people I need your help. Went to put the new wheels on (08 STI 5-spokes). They are +55 offset which is stock (obviously), but my left rear is rubbing on the coilover. The front two are pretty damn close, close enough that I would think sidewall flex in a corner would cause them to touch. I was looking at my camber plates who were last adjusted by Bel-Kirk and the rear left is pointed all the way inboard and the rear right is pointed all the way outboard. The fronts are also not the same but nowhere near as extreme.

So my main question is, is there a way to adjust the rear subframe or diff. I'm thinking that when I did the STI drivetrain swap maybe I didnt line something up correctly? I assumed that the rear end only went back together one way? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Current wheels are +33 offset at 17x9.5 with 255x40 and no rubbing no issues. New wheels are +55 offset 18x8.5 with 245x45.

I can take pictures of the camber plates if that will help.
