Default Alignment issue? Pictures included

Been trying to figure out why I've had an issue with my tire rubbing my upper control arm ever since leveling and alignment. Found today that the eccentric bolts on the lower control arm are set different. On my driver side, both bolts are set the same. The passenger side, both bolts are different from each other, and different from the driver side. Is this normal? I thought Both sides should be the same.

Normal. The adjustment needed on either side to get proper alignment will vary therefore chances are the alignment cams will end up different.

Thanks, I just thought it strange that the driver and passenger side were 180* different from each other

Default Get all proactive at the alignment

Get the alignment people to print out a screen shot of the final angle adjustments. No matter the look of the bolts, the laser guides make the tires get into alignments if the tech reads the screen

I go to a guy who gets all the stuff to within the tight tolerances. So get involved with your alignment.

Here is the alignment report. My camber looks to be an issue even though it's in "spec"
