Negative Rear Camber after lowering springs?

Did you have your car lowered? If so, did you need rear camber correction? What has your experience been with tire wear with the car lowered without correcting the camber in the rear?

I wonder if I should try correcting the camber myself since the shop said they could not adjust the rear camber and it is a hair too negative. HELP!!!

hahaha a few days ago i just noticed my camber was out of alignment. supposedly it is in fact better, yes better, if your rear tires are "butterflying" b/c it will aid you in conering. (note: only if the camber is ever so slightly displaced). yes it will wear out the innerside of your tires quickly. i brought up the same question to a buddy of mine yesterday and he owns a boxster. he showed me his car and his back wheels were doing the 'butterfly' --> / \ he said it came like that and its normal if you lower a car for such a thing to occur. hotchiks sells a rear camber alignment kit.
