126 alignment question

380SE -85. Replaced front upper control arms, rear subframe bushings, differential mount and trailing arm bushings. Went to an alignment and everything came out fine except rear camber. The rear camber is now: left +0.23, right -1.04.

What is the factory spec and is the rear too far from spec??

Should be around 0 deg +- 0.5 deg so the right side must be bent OR that spring is sagging. Is the rt rear lower than the rest of the car?

Thank you M.B.DOC. On the lift it seemed like the rt rear was little bit higher than the rest of the car. Makes me think that the right side is slightly bent. In use the difference between rt and lt is not visible. By the way the rear toe-in is 0.01 (spec from the Hunter table I received says should be 0.15...0.45).

The common sense says to me that these deviations from the spec are so minor that they does not affect to driveability. What do YOU think??
