These are the part numbers for the shims required to adjust camber and castor.

find a wheel alignment place that can do it,there seems to be 2 licences.1 can replace parts and will have the shims, the other adjusts the parts and tells you whats wrong-you have to fix it,most tyre places.

How much of the edge on the inside is wearing? If its only a few centimeters then i would be looking at your toe being wrong rather than camber possible due to worn bushes on the front and effectively your wheels have toed outwards

My AU, going from AU XR to Superlows did require the fitment of shims, but it was within the range allowed by the standard upper control arm mounts.

That changes it! Go get the tie rod ends done, and a wheel alignment. FFS that's what is causing the wear!
