Question 190E rear camber problem - worn-out struts?

I just noticed on my '90 190E 2.6 that the left rear wheel appears to have excessive negative (bottom of tire points outward) camber. I'm thinking this is due to 134K miles on the OEM struts. The right rear and both front tires appear normal, camber-wise. Is this normal for the W201 chassis to acquire negative rear camber as the struts wear-out? I plan on replacing the rear struts first, with Bilstein HD units. Then we'll see if the front struts go along with the change. I'm prepared to change the fronts if need be.
