Default Front wheel camber adjustment 2008 s80 3.2

I am new to the forum but not new to Volvos. I need to adjust the camber of my front wheels on my 2008 s80 3.2, but I have read elsewhere that there is no way to adjust it. Is this true? If the camber is off as bad as it looks, what could be the possible causes? My thoughts were struts or control arm bushings but I dont have any odd noises in the front end.

Any help or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

There is no adjustment. Could be either a bent strut, bent strut tower or bent control arm. Not really a good way to tell unless they are visually damaged

Thanks for the quick reply. I figured that I was looking at replacing a strut or strut mounting hardware. It seems like I've had a lot of problems with struts on all my sedans. Our 2 xc90's haven't had any so far.

So I called the shop where I take my cars and he said that the OEM replacement struts from Volvo have a lifetime warranty. My rhetorical question is why dont they have a lifetime warranty from the factory if they are the same strut?

Volvo does not offer a lifetime warranty on any parts. The ones he is talking about are aftermarket.
