Default Alignment off on 98 Camry

I have a 4 cyl. 98 Camry LE that I have had aligned (4 -wheel) several
times, but the problem is that it still drifts to the left on the highway.

Both front toe settings are equivalent as well as both rear toe settings.
Both front caster settings are equivalent. The only problem is that the
front settings for camber are not equal (left front -0.7 degrees and right
front -1.1 degrees) as well as the rear settings for camber (left rear -0.5
degrees and right rear -1.0 degrees). The thrust angle was corrected from
0.13 degrees to 0.0 degrees

The above settings were the settings that appeared on the printout after the
alignment were done. I understand that camber is not adjustable, but I've
also heard that it is adjustable with a "cam key" or a "camber kit" which is
an aftermarket product.

Two questions: Is the above camber differences the cause of my car pulling
to the left? If so, can a cam key (or kit) adjust the camber to equal
settings and would that solve my problem?

Thanks in advance,

Hoosier

Search this group, or Internet for "radial tire pull"

I had this with the last set of new tires.
Tire dealer replaced offending tire after confirming by switching on
front from left to right.
Problem solved.
