Default front wheels dont look straight(rc8)

just did the streering mod to my rc8 buggy and i noticed the front wheels look off a bit,i checked the turn buckles they are the same lenght,the top of the wheels seem pushed in(pointing to the middle(center)one wheel seems worse than the other,its not real bad ,tryed to adjust the upper a-arm to get it right,it helped a little.the one wheel even looks a little higher than the other.when i took the wheels off one of the hubs looked like it was pointing up higher than the other.what should i do next? does anyone know what could be wrong,i have no caster or toe gauges. thanks

1 - put car on a stand with wheels of the ground.
2 - adjust shock preload so it is equal on both shocks
3 - set the downtravel limit screw (in the arm) so both arms have the same travel
4 - set the upper arms to same lenght.
5 - pu the car down and camber should be ok
