Have you moved the car to settle the suspension
Will it ever be a good runner ?

Well I suppose the obvious answer is, did you check that the control arm is the right length before and after? A common fit was P100 arms and bushes as the bushes were slightly "stiffer", I believe...? Maybe this resulted in it holding the arm slightly tighter in position?

 

Otherwise if it was fine before and now it's not, I'm not sure what else it could be, assuming the top mount hasn't moved into another hole, or maybe it's slotted in some way and has moved outward?

Check that the spring is sitting properly on its top and bottom seats, if not seated properly it could be lifting that corner and giving positive camber. When i had mine after it had been jacked up the spring would sometimes give acrack as it settled into position
