Asking for suspension advice/knowledge

When my '00 base is off the ground on jack stands, I notice the driver's side front wheel has obviously more positive camber than the passengers side wheel. I feel like that's not normal, but I'm still new to the 986 and figured someone here may be able to teach me something. I tired to get it to show in pictures but it seems I'm not skilled enough to do that, haha.

The relevant history on the car's suspension is when I got the car, the broken driver's side drop link was replaced and i replaced passenger side at same time (someone had installed driver's side part on passengers side). Old front tires had extreme wear on insides of tires, so after replacing drop links, I had new front tires installed and full allignment done. That was roughly 2500 miles ago.

Currently, nothing looks broken or worn to shreds and the car drives without problem. Thanks in advance!
Ben

What does it matter? You don't drive the car like that so what really matters is when it is weighted up. The weight is not the same in each corner. If you want to be really picky you can ballast the front for fuel and the driver seat with your weight, assuming you do the fastest driving on your own.

10-4, thanks for the tip. I'd just never seen that before when lifting my other vehicles.
