Alignment?

I just had my car aligned at a local shop after getting new tires and installing springs. The shop told me the rear camber is not adjustable and is currently at -2.08 / -2.03 degrees (L/R) with H&R springs and 19" tires. The alignment report states spec is between -1.75 and -1.58 degrees.

Here is a copy of the report:



After reading this https://www.newtis.info/tisv2/a/en/i...ide/1VnXkZg2H3 and seeing others alignment reports it appears the rear camber is adjustable.

So is the rear camber adjustable? Is the extra negative camber okay?

-2.08 degrees of camber is not that much more from the factory, it will let you corner better but you will have slight additional wear on the inside tire. Based on your link the camber is adjustable but you might already be at the limit, it is normal to be out of range from lowering the vehicle. I personally wouldn't be bothered by your current alignment, whoever was the technician did a good job.
