Camber kit ftw! Viva performance has them. BTW, i am guessing your finances are doing well since you still have your car <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> Glade you still have it.
Glad to see you kept one of the sickest looking S40s ever! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0"> But yes, you HAVE to get the rear camber, I was having the same problems you had, and since I've gotten them the tire wear is now manageable.

After seeing just how badly my wallet was going to get mauled (~600$), I explicitly asked them to check the alignment and they said it was fine. In my prior experience, camber and toe were included in alignments.
