Do yourself a favor and replace the front strut mounts as well.

Do yourself an additional favor and remove the pesky assembly pins (rounded 3mm allen head things) at the top before installing the strut assemblies back in the car. Noting the orientation of where the pin WAS and place it to match up with the hole on the strut tower.



When you get a wheel alignment, the shop will be able to easily make any camber adjustments (within factory provisions of +/- .5) to bring the two front camber near to each other.
Thanks, can you clarify how you put the stut mount back without the pin?
Cheers
