Q: Front wheel camber on 1998 Toyota Avalon

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
My car has chewed-up the inside of both front tires to the point I just replaced them as they showed the steel belt.
Shop #1 advises to replace struts. (Both were replaced 10Kmiles ago on 3/08. Originals lasted 120Kmiles)
Shop #2 advises to just do a wheel alignment.
Which one is the real solution? Can camber be adjusted without replacing struts? Can new struts go bad so fast?
Thanks
Alberto

Many cars have a camber adjustment though some cars only have a toe (in or out) adjustment. If the struts are not leaking or bouncing excessively when driving, I would personally start with the alignment. hope this helps! If there is no camber adjustment, there may be a camber kit available but an alignment is where I would start.
