Help:: Can rotating tires affect alignment??

Today I rotated my tires and was told to jack the car up first, then remove lugs. I tried doing that but I guess the lugs were all overtightened so I used a socket wrench to loosen them while the tires were in the air. My question is can my camber change by doing this (I have rear camber kits installed btw)? My other friend said that I should have loosened the lugs while the car was on the ground.

Right now.. it seems that my rear driver's side tire is more negative -0.65 --> ~ -1 and my rear passenger side is more positive -0.55 --> ~ -0.1 (tire hits fender now).

heh yea.. i'm not worried about the negative camber.. but my right passenger rear tire became more postive so the tire hits the fender so the fender cuts into the tire.
