Default Rear Camber

So i just installed my new BC coilovers Br series and did my alignment I am running 225 45 17 tires 17 x 7.5 Rota Tarmac III and came to this

Front

Camber
-.5 L -.5 R
Caster
3.5 L 3.8 R
Toe
0 L 0 R

Rear

Camber
-2.4 L - 3.4 R
Toe
.5 L .5 R

I tried taking a TOMCAT bag to push out the strut but couldn't get any less than a 1 degree spread of camber in the rear there are no cmber plates in the rear.
So my question is am I going to need rear camber bolts or camber plates to eliminate this problem or should I be ok if I just rotated my tires more frequent?

Thanks

-0.5* up front? and -2.4*/-3.4 in back?

go get a professional alignment and corner balancing. the money spent there will save your tires and allow your car to handle much better.

Well the reason that the rear is like that is bc i can not get it to come in anymore
hence the reason I had set this up I don't race just my DD I only drive this car around town so........
can anyone help me with what i should do to bring this camber in
also I am a service center manager and I am a working manager so this in my opinion is a professional alignment

raise the car a bit

that usually lessens rear camber or ya got something bent

and you want -1.5 camber in front---at least

and kill the toe in back....THAT will eat tires in a heartbeat

+1 to Scott the Uncle.

-2.5L, -3.5R says to me either a)something didn't go together properly, or; b) something's bent.

If you're getting those kinda numbers in the rear, you must be pretty low, so dial in some more front camber. Even with my -35mm H&Rs I can get -1* in the front (with -1.5* fixed in the rear, for the moment).
Dial out some rear camber. If you can't do it with the stock bolts, get some aftermarkets ones.

What are your ride heights F/R?
