Irregular rear tire wear

I have irregular inner rear tire wear. The inside of the rear tires has wear from possible bouncing of the shocks. It has eibach shocks. Does that mean they are bad and need replaced ?? Any help is great !

by "irregular", do you mean the inner tread is uneven (cupping) or that it has worn faster than the center+outer tread?

Both are common problems on the rear of old Focii. The conventional wisdom is that cupping is caused by worn shocks and accelerated inner wear is due to excessive toe/camber. Of course, on an old vehicle it is possible/likely that both are culprits.
