Okay I got mine all back together. The spring sits properly on a new, rubber perch pad. I replaced the rear Upper control arm and tightened it all up under load. The spring looks good with car sitting on the ground with tire on. At that point, negative camber looked reasonable, and comparable with the right side. However, I took it for a short drive before hand torquing wheels, and when I brought it back, the excessive negative camber returned.

I now think I have a bad ball joint.

Before i replace the ball joint, I may try to isolate the ball joint pblm like they do in this video, using a bottle jack as noted above. I may also bring it to a local mechanic with a alignment rack and actually check it.
