rear negative camber

went to my tyre dealer...

cause after my lowering i have bad negative camber at the rear
...
and they tell me there's no way to adjust camber in our cars...
you can adjust toe... but you can't adjust camber...

ppl got any ideas??
i have about 2 degress of negative camber in the rear...

oh, btw, i live in australia, so Hotchkis camber links aren't a solution cause they cost way too much to import...
and can't find a place here to buy them

please help if you can...thanks

well...you took the words right out of my mouth...Hotchkis' links are the only ones that i know of, and they work great...in my opinion it'd probably be worth the money to find them no matter the cost, especially if you plan on keeping your car lowered

U can do small camber adjustement in the rear w/out hotchkis camber links...You need them only if your car is very low (2" or more lowering springs for example)

According to your profile you have a 1.25" drop. The stock links are plenty adjustable within that range. As said 2" drops are pushing its capabilities and thats when you can get the Hotckis camber links. Take your car to a real shop and they will be able to get your camber in check.

its normal to have a neg camber when you lower a car.
as mentioned the stock camber can be adjusted with an 1"-1.5" drop
i have TRD and my tire place adjusted it fine thumbsup
