I get about 2 degrees of negative camber on my car on my rear wheels. Is this normal?

it's also normal if they differ by about half a degree too.

how do you figure that out? or is that something an alignment shop would figure out for you?

really the only way to adjust the rear camber (easily that is) is to swap the stationary camber link for an adjustable unit, but it adjusts both wheels a similiar amount. So if the difference is .3 of a degree out to start with, you can adjust them up and down, but without being able to adjust them seperatley you can never get them perfect.



Not a big deal really tho, a half a degree of cambe isn't that bad unless you have some 275's on the back or something.



I was actually helping/watching an alignment guy trying to get it perfect and it just wasn't happening for him.

I just noticed on the vert the inside of the tires in the rear is wearing pretty bad from my camber. Everything is all stock but im thinking some mounts are broken cuasing it all. Any else have any better ideas? btw I drive this car everyonce and a while and have put maybe 50 miles on these tires and they're bald on the inside edge.
