I learned something interesting at the dealership tonight.

I was there primarily for my first NYS inspection, but because of this thread I asked them to check the alignment. Later, the service writer came out and told me that I was all set, and that the alignment showed everything is in spec.

I asked to see the alignment numbers, so he handed me a sheet. Not only was the car alignment in spec, but all of the parameters were almost perfectly in the middle of each spec's range.

All but one: The right rear's Camber was at -1.9 degrees, with the spec being from -2.0 to -0.5 degrees. So I said, "I'm not liking that this one parameter is at the very edge of the spec. What would it take to bring the right rear's Camber into the middle of the range?"

He said that the rears are not adjustable, and that all alignment changes are made at the front. So, since it was in spec and couldn't be improved, I left.

Is this accurate? Is it true the alignment of the rear can't be improved? Should I have handled this situation any differently?
