BC Coilover Issue

Recently I've noticed my rear driver side wheel has a negative camber on my BC Coilover suspension. After the install I got an alignment and didnt notice the camber issue for about a year. I don't know when it started but I dont think it was like that after the install. Every other wheel looks good as far as camber goes, its just the rear left that seems to have shifted a ton. Do I have to buy rear camber plates to fix this? or is there something I can do in my driveway? Could my rear left wheel have a different height than the others? I dont really want to buy the rear camber kit if I dont have to and was wondering if anyone has had this problem before or if anyone can help?

The top Clevis holes are slotted and give you a little adjustment. You would just loosen those up and pull. Then tighten back up. Unless you have an alignment tool you are not going to know how much to pull out. I would make sure that the inner tire isnt grinding on the spring perch and then take it back to a shop to get it realigned. Sometimes if the clevis bolts arent torqued down all the way, the knuckle can slip.

so are the clevis bolts the ones at the bottom of the CO that hold the entire assembly? I put this off till now, but when I looked at it I wasn't really sure where to start. Can you give me a little more detailed explanation? Thanks in advance for the help! I tried contacting BC about this but they had no idea.

Yes the bottom of the coilover.. it has two bolts holding the knuckle.. The top is the one you loosen, pull back and tighten. The bottom you just loosen it slightly until you can move the assembly back and forward.. Pretty simple once you're doing it..
