Camber is the lean "off perpendicular" of the wheel. This error could be worn control arm bushings or something bent from a collision or pothole curb hit. Jack up the car from the lower control arm, not the frame. This will keep weight on the front suspension same as if it's on the ground. With the tire about 2 inches off the ground and the car wheels chocked safely, now you can check for wear. Do not get under the car !!!! Use about a 2 foot steel bar or pipe, placed under the wheel. Now lifting up see if there is loosness , clunking of the wheel or movement of the control arm bushings.

what you need is an alignment. to have an alignment done, no parts need to be replaced. the car is put on a machine which measures 3 things on the wheels. then after the measurments are in, the suspension is adjusted, which makes your tire wear even. but like i said, no place needs to be replaced for an alignment. unless the part is visually damaged or making unusual noises it shouldnt need to be replaced. also, regular mechanics usually dont have the equipment to measure if your alignment is off or not. which means you have to take it to an alignment specialist, and they should give you a price of how much it should cost. usually is around 100 dollars for one pair of wheels(front or back) and should be under 200 for both front and back. hope this helps, goodluck.
