Default Rear Camber?

What is the easiest way to change the rear camber on an 02 wrx? I would like close to 0 camber in the rear and I hear they have camber bolts? if so... where are these bolts and which way do I turn them for what?

I had .8 degrees in the rear last year and the car was still spin happy. 0 is mental.

What is your front camber at? People usually set rear camber to 0.5* more positive. I'm shooting for -2.0f/-1.5r next time at the alignment shop. My car is more of a DD and only autox 1-2 times a month.

Going 0 camber in the rear is pretty dangerous for DDing. Spinning out on the highway is not fun.

Are you trying to get 0 camber all around for drag racing? That should help with acceleration, that's probably the only use for having 0 camber in the rear (and front).
