Nope. The camber adjustment should be going straight left to right, not diagonal.

Some camber plates can be installed so adjusting camber also increases caster angle.

This happened to me with my fortune auto coilovers. The camber plate was mounted on the wrong strut assembly from the factory. gave me the same caster camber look you have going on. switch the right camber plate to the left shock, vice versa.
