Another thing to consider is whether the factory is using any elastokinematics in the design. In other words, are they using bushing compliance to accomplish any useful alignment dynamics? I can't really say without getting under the car and examining how the bushings and the suspension geometry interplay. Many cars will use bushing compliance to introduce a bit of dynamic toe-in under cornering loads (MINI, for example) for added stability, which can be useful or detrimental depending on what you're trying to accomplish with the car.
