Hello and welcoem to justanswer.com
There is no camber adjustment on the front of the X Type. We see alot of springs sagging and front strut issues causing excessive negative camber. You can also loosen the four subframe bolts and shift the frame. If both sides are too far negative then moving the frame will not help. You may also have a bent hub which I have seen on a few occasions.
Thank you Richard. Is there an adjustment on the rear? The mechanic said all 4 wheels are off by about -1 degree. Would replacing the springs help with the camber?
No adjustment on the rear either. For the rear there are small trailing arms that the bushings wear out which can cause excessive negative camber. New springs will help the camber in the rear. Honestly I do not see many X Types with good rear camber. The front is another story as it will wear out the tires fast if it's -1.2 or more. I would suspect worn out front springs and shocks in the front.
