Use Of Camber Shims On Rear Cobalt Lt W/ ABS

I had an alignment done on my 2010 Cobalt LT and the car still wanders.
This is after replacing front suspension parts for all new suspension parts.
The thing is the rear left driver side has a positive camber of +.4 degrees
which is +.5 off of the range specification of -1.4 - -.1
Guy at the alignment shop said they couldn't use rear alignment shims
to correct my camber because of my car having ABS.
Anybody ever heard of that?
I think myself that the rear left driver side camber is what is causing my car to wander.

I know camber won't make a car wander.

How are your trailing ARM bushings? That would make it wander but a very rare problem on the Cobalts.
