My V50 is stock, that being said, my rear tires get chewed to pieces about every 6 months. Replaced shocks, sway bar links and lateral links. Do I need to replace the rear cambers with a kit? I hit a bump and it feels like the back end just jumps to the side.

What do your alignment specs look like?

Tire pressure? when you say chewed? are they cupped? are the inner or outer side of the tires worn? what brand and quality tires are you purchasing? Has the car been in an accident?

maybe its not just camber but toe or another alignment spec thats wrong... what do the rear control arm bushings look like? because if its something like ruined bushing(which is common) getting alignments wont really help.
