As far as the bushings and eccentrics being replaced goes, I'm looking into that as well.
The model year by the way is a 1990.
I'm surprised that nobody mentioned the shop that Rspeed uses for alignments. They did a great job on my car and the price was considerably lower than the current stated prices. Also they get the alignment specs from Rspeed so you won't get just another simple alignment from simple people who simply get it in the green and let it go. You should give them a call...
Fix 'em and break 'em
I'm having issues getting pictures off of my phone, but I took it to Butler and the rear camber is set to -2.7 and -2.4
Front left camber: -.9
Front right camber: -.5
It's a HUGE improvement from where the last shop set it, not to mention they left my eccentrics and tie rods loose. :/
^ those are your new specs? Better, but still not optimal. Why so much rear camber and so little front? Why so much variance between left and right?
That must understeer like crazy...
This is the result of that FLCA ball joint about 2-3 months later.
My car had uneven alignment issues until I replaced my eccentrics and bushings. It is much more compliant now.

The camber in the rear is maxed out. I'm assuming new eccentrics and bushings would fix it based on what i've read. Regardless, they're necessary after over 20 years in my opinion. I don't quite understand the variation between left and right up front, but I will be taking it back to have the front specs matched.
As far as the ride height goes, its a pretty even 3.25 up front and 3.5 in back.
If you have the factory toe the fronts should have about .4 degrees more negative camber then the rears.
Might as well do front eccentrics too.
Get the front to 2.0 and the rear to 1.5
Still seems less than optimal, but I still suspect that there is more going on here. Your car is too low, and you also indicated 15x8 +12 wheels with only 195 tires on them.
What exactly are you going for? Super low ride height + wheels with ridiculous offset + 195 tires /= performance
I'm mostly surprised the wheels fit in the fenders, TBH.
