<VV> rear wheel camber

You have negitive camber. It's adjusted via the camber adjusting bolt at the 
wheel end of the sway (strut) bar.
Bare in mind, if this adjustment bolt hasn't been moved in the recent past, 
it'll probably snap off.
This is often caused (the neg.camber) by rotten sway bar bushings, 
especially that the transaxle end.

Subject: <VV> rear wheel camber

Greetings folks,

     I had a question about my late model Vairs.   Just for the hell of it 
lets say we are dealing with a lowered car (one is lowered, the other is 
maybe a hair lower then stock).  Both of my cars have very drastic camber on 
the rear wheels... it looks like an elephant sat on the back of the car and 
bent the rear axle <gg>.  Can this be adjusted out, and do you have any 
advice on just how much to adjust.

     FYI my first vair had the same problem and kept chewing the inside edge 
off the rear tires because of it.... I dont want to chew up tires and it 
looks like crap... please help.
