I think you misunderstood me.

I do know that when you align a car, and then lower/raise it, your camber will change. That's exactly why my rear camber is off in the latest alignment. But what I...

It's a TRW rack, and I thought TRW was somewhat quality. Tie rods and anti roll bar links are both new, and have 0 play on them.
