havin some rear camber problems

i noticed today my ds rear tire had more camber than normal like 45* unnormal. i do need the link but havent got the money yet. the problem is that the camber wasnt all till now. so i just went out like 5 min ago pulled the tire off and made sure nothing was loose. let car back down and now tire is streighter then ever. so i pulled car down driveway and back like 3 feet and its messed up again. whats going on

Try loosening or tightening the eccentric adjuster could be just spinning around

This.

Check bushings, subframe bolts, strut tops, all hardware. Wheelbearings, tierod ends, control arms. If your camber is moving that much with just a little drive something is worn out or damaged. You jacked it up and didn't feel anything loose? You missed something. Checked it again before the alignment, missed it again. I would suspect something as drastic as the sub frame moving around.

Re: havin some rear camber problems

Check your lower control arms, make sure the ball joints aren't loose or the arms themselves aren't loose. The lower control arms control your camber, check to make sure the adjuster bolt, where the lower arm bolts to the subframe is tight and not loose. If those aren't torqued down they will rotate themselves from vibration. Make sure the Ball Joint holes on the arms aren't elongated either (you'll find out quick if your ball joint falls out)

Also check your trailing arm shock mounts for anything like this...This is bad, very, very bad.

Re: havin some rear camber problems

actually the upper arm is the camber adjustment & trailing arm adjusts for toe. Now if it's as messed up as the pic you posted the trailing arm could cause a camber issue.
