Default wrx rear wheel alignment

Hi
This has probably been asked before but I have been told that I cannot get a correct rear wheel alignment on my 2008 WRX hatch. They cannot get any camber adjustment. I have been to Pedders and they have no offset pins or bushes to rectify this problem. Is there something out there that will fix this problem.
Cheers Andrew

John normally works out of Perth gents.

OP - your local Pedders should know the Whiteline catalogue off by heart. If you have no joy with them, ring a couple of other suspension places.

Good luck.

STechnic also do wheel alignments. I never purchased camber bolts and have -1 degrees on my '08 hatch at all four corners. I think if you want to go beyond that you need bolts.

edit: WA Suspensions did my alignment.

I have -2.1 on the rear of my betty, without using any camber bolts/bushes. It's been lowered 30mm with coilovers.

Avoid muppets like Pedders, they have no idea!

I also suggest avoiding most tyre shops.

As you are in Queensland, I don't have local knowledge to recommend workshops in your area.

I have however heard positive feedback about;

AM Auto, Rising Sun Subaru and Subi-Evolution.

I hope that this helps.
