Caster out.. bushes?

I’ve just had my 182 with Cup Packs’ (and Bilstein B14s) wheels aligned and the caster at the front seems quite far out.

From what I can see elsewhere in the forums, it’s likely to be worn wishbone bushes. But they look fine on inspection, and the wishbones are only about 15,000 miles old. I have admittedly driven the car on track a couple of times, but only with normal road tyres. So the loading wouldn’t have been abnormally high. I think..

Anyone know if a 0.8 degree difference is something bushes would likely cause, or am I looking at something more significant?

Any guidance is much appreciated!

Yeah they should be correct. Sourced from Renault with my reg a couple of years ago. Now I’m worried I’ve been running on incorrect spec ones.. I best check first!

Anyone know what I should be looking at or measuriing when getting under the car to check that my wishbones are both of 182 Cup spec?

I've come across images (below) that compare 172 and 172 Cup wishbones (I think) - assuming this sort of visible difference is what I should be looking for under my car?

Yes, also could be non oem wishbone. If the look the same then they are most likely oem.
