    last time i had the alignment they told me the passenger rear camber toed out, and this has put it just over 1 degree in to the red!, i asked him to do the rear camber by adjusting the bolt, but he said they snap alot and advised me to leave it, as there isn't any odd wear on the outer side of the tyre, so my question is this, have you had your camber done on the rear, did you have any problems, and why would it go out when it was ok last year?
    and have you heard of this bolt snapping, or the washers breaking? how is this done, undo nut, then turn bolt, then retighten?

    I believe it's just a case of loosening a locknut, rotate the concentric bolt to get the desired camber then re-tighten the locknut. Easy in theory but i wouldn't be surprised if it was seized solid much like every other bolt i have had to take off under the car.
