To add to my previous post, usually the fronts have different cambers from what I have found due to subframe alignment(the way it bolts up). I had my subframe loose to do some work and my camber went from more on the drivers side to more on the passengers. (it was around -1.2*, -0.9 to -.09,-1.2)

So- I ought to be good with just bolts and adjust the -2.1 rear side in some? That's kinda what I was hoping. When I got my wheels mounted I bought the lifetime balance and rotation, so- getting them rotated rain or sleet shouldn't be an issue, just yeah- these are kind of expensive tires, I'd like to keep em a while- plus want the best drivability possible.

So- the only way to adjust the front camber is subframe or camber plates?

Will it cause any issues that all sides are set so differently from eachother?

Yeah- my driveway, I'm fine with one wheel off the ground- 2 is pushing it. The only flat driveway I can borrow is over 1.5hr away. We are working on building a flat paved area around the side of the house- but it's slow going. Just got the trees all cut down. Gotta level next, then pave...

Oh, and yes- they set my toe fine, not sure what to, ill have to ask next time, but he said they had no issues with it, it was just the camber the alignment shop was warning me about.
