Re: Rear suspension camber

You can buy eccentric bushes for the rear arms to allow you to adjust them powerflex do them.
Essentially the bush center is off set so you can adjust camber and toe not the cheapest of bushes to buy but will help with your problem.
Come in sets of 4 with the adjustment spanners.

Re: 18" LM reps rubbing on front arch liner.

At a 38 offset its about as wide as you could go on the front .It will be the tyre catching due to the lower suspension.
Its quite common on the zed when lowered, mine have done the same.

A 15 offset is too low i run a 8.5 38 offset and thats flush i ran as low as an 18 on the rear (pre 2.8) and could bury the 15 there but no chance on the front you'll be talking 23mm further out they would likely foul too as tyre is incorrect. http://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q7/cab306/Mobile%20Up...
