00' Wagon rear camber

Has anyone had problems with rear tire wear and too much camber on a wagon? Is there a solution to too much positive camber ? It is within spec acording to the dealer but it has noticable positive camber and is wearing the inside of the tires rather fast.

Yep, it is a problem. I would suggest getting a rear camber kit which simply consists of 2 replacement bolts (aprox. $35) with a cam on them to allow you to adjust the camber.

Thanks I'll give that a try. I don't know why Ford didn't do that in the first place.

I just lowered my 2000 Wagon and I still may have to put camber bolts at both ends to make mine right.
