camber kits are not over rated, they serve a purpose.... such as this. how low are you? is there any clearance between the top of the tire and the fender(finger width)? and what are you lowered on, springs or coilovers?

you're getting negative camber because your car is lowered, you need a camber kit to correct the tire camber

I know what your problem is. Look in your inner fenderwell, there's a "lip" where the fender joins together, I think it's called a fender seam. It's underneath your inner fender liner.

Basically, you can either bend it flat with a crescent wrench, or hammer it flat with a mallet or something similar. when you do this make sure the seam is bent towards the outside of your car.

After you're done, paint with rubberized asphalt coating, and you might as well trim down your inner fender liners, where the seam was, a little bit with an exacto knife.

Some Evo X's also have this issue, as their inner fenders have a similar design.
Here's a link for the Evo X:

*Official Slammed/Stanced Evo X* - Page 120 - EvoXForums.com - Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X Forums

As another option, you can add a set of wheel spacers (to push the wheel further away from that seam).

BTW, is you car slammed?
