Cam bolts are on the lower control arm pivots, they allow defined movement to 
align the strut.

Likely the bushings are worn, the bolts usually are not (although it can 
happen), and you get the result you have, not enough adjustment.

Also possible that the ball joint(s) are worn, although that is usually pretty 
obvious.  Could also be a bad upper strut mount, or an incorrectly installed 
upper mount -- on some applications they can be "backwards" front to rear.

You also probably have slightly loose bushings.  This will result in excessive 
tire wear and noise.

Proper cure is to replace the worn parts -- depending on the design, this could 
be worn or deformed bushings, worn cam bolts, or a worn ball joint.
