What condition are you experiencing that you need to adjust the camber?
I'm not so sure a kit is common for your vehicle and shim form might not be an option based on the suspension configuration.

You need a good alignment, not camber adjustment

Did you get the alignment done after lowering it?

Is it just the inner edge of the tyre that's worn? Is so that's due to excessive toe out i.e. both front wheels are trying to move away from each other.

If the wear is even across the thread tapering to the inside, for example 5mm outside, 3 mm middle, 1mm inside, then you have a camber problem.

Excessive toe is often mistaken for camber wear.
Get yourself an alignment with the toe set to parallel or even a little toe in.

Iv had the same issues again, two Michelin pilot sport 5’s put on in mid June, 10000 miles later, both looked perfect and had 4.5mm tread across whole tire, parked with my wheels turned at the weekend and noticed the canvas and wire showing through on both inside edges, got two more fitted yesterday and tracked. Hopefully it’s tracked right this time.
