I have a 2002 Honda Civic Hatchback (Make in UK, the body looks like the Civic SI in the States). Both the shocks and the lower arms have been replaced. I can see how the lower arms being too short could cause positive camber.

Are there other problems that could cause positive camber?

For example, I'm guessing that a strut assembly being too long could cause this problem. Is this a possible?

This is a more general question that is related to my specific question here: The wrong control arm for my 2002 Honda Civic?

    if it was aligned with old lower control arm, it will need re-aligned after replacement. – Moab Mar 24 '20 at 14:28
  • What makes you think you have positive camber? Do you have measurements to prove it? If so, please share them. – HandyHowie Mar 24 '20 at 17:06
  • @Moab I performed an alignment after replacing the arms. – krumpelstiltskin Mar 24 '20 at 19:51
  • @HandyHowie This question assumes that there is a problem with postive caster (aka the included angle) – krumpelstiltskin Mar 24 '20 at 19:53
  • @krumpelstiltskin then they did it wrong. – Moab Mar 24 '20 at 21:17
