    After observing the car so closely I could make out a positive camber angle.Despite FASS claimed to have this uneven wear sorted out by having shims at the rear wheel, I could see a slight positive camber angle.Other than this does any component of the suspension setup contribute to this positive camber?Just like any bend to some of the parts,some thing like that to be inspected?

    Theoretically - if the axle vertically hits an object in between the suspension points it will lead to positive camber. Check axle, shocks and shims.

    Even my car is suffering from left wheel wear out, I took it for balancing, rotation and alignment and that is when I got to know about the wear. 18250 kms done. How do we know if there is positive camber? I have the report from a reputed alignment centre here at bangalore. I have had not wobbling issues at high speed, though, pulling to the left has been present to some extent. I do not see any leak in suspension area to suspect. The alignment was off and got that corrected by adjusting the toe.
