About two years ago I went thru the tire thing on my 03 Sedan. After consulting with Geezer and Illinopo on how to correct it I bought two adjustable -1.5 tom+5 degree SPC rear control arms at $219.00 and had them installed for $50.00. We put the toe in the rear to as low as possible within specs which was about .15 degrees and kept the camber at -1.1.

My car stopped eating tires and handles great.

Before it was a death ride during the winter months or when the highway was wet.........the thing would hydroplane at 45 mph.

Thanks to Geezer and Illinopo........you stopped the bleeding for me.......
