There isn't an adjustment for camber
IF it shows the correct range for camber and mine is outside of that range, what then? Just have a car that is not fixable?There isn't an adjustment for camber
Weird. They said everything looked good in the inspection. I'll ask the dealership to check it when I bring it in for my 6 year service next month.Something is bent. Usually have to guess to figure it out though, unfortunately.
I'd really like for it to match (or be close) to the caster on the other rear wheel. Since I have directional tires, and the rotation will be rear to front, I would really like the tires to wear similar on both sides. I really hope I don't get cupping/scalloping on the left rear tire again.It seems reasonably close, and if it is off too much, something is typically bent (lower link?), and would need to be replaced (or bent back some)
Yes I was going to say the same thing. It should be at the default ride height. I had asked my tech not long after it had arrived stateside post OSD and he said it should be at the Hybrid. He had also mentioned disabling air suspension (service mode) but I don’t think it was in the context of alignment. That might have been for jacking up to rotate if I wanted to do them myself.You have air suspension. Do you know if they turned it off or adjusted the height to right position before alignment. It makes a difference with some numbers
Yeah, BUT that enhances handling,so there's that...Negative camber would mean the top of the rear tires is tilted towards the vehicle giving a distinct "sagging" look of the rear of the vehicle. Few things could be the reason as other members suggested. There should be eccentric bolt kit that can be adapted to make the camber adjustable. Otherwise, the factory method would be replacing control arms to compensate the squished rubber bushings on the original suspension.
I had to buy all new tires after just 19,000 miles because the rear was so scalloped it was unsafe (in addition to being extremely loud and all kinds of vibration occurring). I rotated the tires and drove about 800 miles, hoping for it to even out, but it didn't get any better and I threw in the towel and paid $1,200 for new tires.Negative 1.9 degrees of camber seems like a lot to me.
I guess if it were me, I'd say what my dentist always says: "Well, I'll let you go for now, but we need to keep a close eye on that molar".
In other words, I'd be inclined to let it go as-is but would watch like a hawk for scalloping/cupping to appear on the inner shoulder of the LR tire. I hate scalloping. My V60 was prone to it. I hate the noise it creates. Once it starts, it's almost impossible to reverse even by rotating.

Both rears scalloped or just the left rear?I had to buy all new tires after just 19,000 miles because the rear was so scalloped it was unsafe (in addition to being extremely loud and all kinds of vibration occurring). I rotated the tires and drove about 800 miles, hoping for it to even out, but it didn't get any better and I threw in the towel and paid $1,200 for new tires.
