Difficulty getting alignment after lowering the car!!!

I got the car lowered on H&R springs and when I took the car for alignment the shop said the front passenger wheel cant be adjusted? Now the front wheel is off by 0.3 and they said it is not a big deal!!!!
I will scan and post the specifications tomorrow.
There is no issue with springs. They are installed correctly.
Is this true? Is there such a thing that the wheel can't be adjusted?

If you're talking about camber there are alignment pins that need to be pulled in order to adjust. You can look up a DIY on this forum.

Fixed camber plates like the Dinan above will do nothing to help equalize L to R alignment specs that have become unequal for some reason. However 1/4 degree difference is not a cause for alarm. Pull the alignment pin as noted in Post #2, and you should be able to adjust camber on the affected side. You can also pull both sides and have a little more negative camber on each side. I am on H&R springs and pulled the pins.
