    Default 407 SW rear camber

    Hi has anyone solved the rear camber issue? I refer to the fact that it is not adjustable. Mine is out off spec (left -2 1/2, and right -2) and a fast trip to Melbourne and back finished wearing the inside of the tires out.
    Just fitted new Kumo KU31 and don't want the same to happen to them.
    TIA Robert

    Analysis,
    What are the specified figures for rear end? Half a degree variation is nothing.
    Was the wagon overloaded?
    Is the rear end toe-in adjustable?

    I agree with Wildebeest, it's more likely to be a toe issue with those camber figures. Out of spec toe imparts a scrubbing action to the tyre and causes rapid wear, assuming tyre pressures were relatively OK of course.

    Hi guys, thanks for the replies. Toe was indeed bad,-7.3mm on left and + 1.3 on right. adjusted to +1.6 and +1.5, operator said that would help with the camber, which is now 1dg 53' left and 1 dg 57' right. So camber is now in spec. what do you think of the total toe now at +3.1 mm only toe spec I could find is in degrees(0 dg 17', +- 4').
    cheers Robert
