Questions about Alignment

Please feel free to chime in.

As far as I can see by the suspension on our F10's the only alignment on the front seems to be the toe angle, and on the rear, toe angle also. (correct me if i'm wrong). The thrust arms seem to be bolt on with no adjustment (caster angle).

To make any other adjustments to the suspension suck as camber or caster would require and adjustable kit or lobed type setup on the upper or lower control arms.

Since our cars are double wishbone suspension changing springs should only change the camber angle, which cannot be adjusted. (please correct me if i'm wrong).

Depending on the height or center point of the steering tirerod, would affect your toe as the camber progressively changes under load. So is this the only alignment adjustment done?

I'm really curious about it? i know on my e46 it was single wishbone/macpherson strut so the bolts at the top of the shock tower would be your caster/camber adjustment.

I believe you can adjust the camber in the rear.
