Rear camber kit svt

I have been doing a search in all the forums and have come up with nill on my question. I have my SVT lowered with tien s-tech springs which alot of us here know lower the car quite a bit. I love how low it is but, it is killing my rear tires.

Here is what I need help with or direction. I put a rear camber kit in and it was only really able to give me about a 1 degree or so of camber adjustment. Is there any other kits or way to get me more camber adjustment for the rear wheels?

The one thing I was able to find were off-road kits from focus central which look as though they might replace the upper control arm however, the only recommend using these with coil-overs.

Any help would be great!

Thanks!

the focus central kit is for "road racing" so it would be fine for you, but you are right it probably won't fit with your current setup.

How much camber are you running up front? And aren't you going to get a heck of a lot of understeer if you put much more camber out back?

I am not trying to put more camber in the rear I am trying to get it closer to factory spec. My front camber is fine about a degree or so off if that. I dont race yet and I drive along way to work so I need it closer to factory spec for tire wear.
