Had a back tyre blowout today. Heavy wear on the inside which looks to be due to the camber being far too negative. An android protractor app is showing -3.5 while the opposite side which is wearing evenly is coming in a -1.7

Is it ok to adjust this yourself? I'd be happy to just increase the positive camber til it comes in line with the other side.... Or will this screw up the alignment of the wheel as well?

E39's do this if the top arm joints are shot

tracking won't help if the carrier bushings and joints have a lot of wear, there is only so much you can adjust out.

Does the car feel like it's jolting or pulling to a side if you hit a bump or pothole with one or other side? if it does its likely worn joints
