[T3] Alignment

Rear camber on the IRS is not adjustable far as I know. I had too much on my 74 bug and was able to get some of it out by replacing the arms which had sagged or twisted over time from abuse also replaced the rubber bushings with the urethane ones they work great but are a bit noisy and need a bit of lubrication every so often . 

All though there is some amount of negative camber built into it already and changes with ride height. 

This is just my experience but those here who have been around a bit longer might have other advice.

Finally figured out how to to program the alignment machine at the tech school to do cars made before 1983. Looks like the camber is a little off on the left front and the right rear also the toe on the left rear. 
Here is the screen on the alignment machine in this photo.


Is there a way to adjust the camber on the rear? I found in the Bentley how to adjust the toe on the rear and the camber on the front but looks like there is no adjustment for rear camber. May have to swap out the trailing arm or the bushing the trailing arm pivots on. Any other suggestions would be helpful. Now if anyone has an alignment issue or any other thing that requires other shop equipment at the school during the 2018 invasion they are more than welcome to use it.
