There is a bit of adjustment in toe on the rear. You have to loosen the bolts on the spring plate so that it can be moved forward or back.

That's what I was thinking. I have an extra pair of trailing arms from the 72 square I scraped a few years ago. May try that along with seeing if those bushing are still available. I would assume they are the same ones used on a type 1. If i got desperate enough I could try sending it to the body shop next door where they have a frame machine and could bend the arm but that could open a can of worms as far as weakening the structural integrity of the arm. The biggest problems its having in this area is has a decant pull to the right just enough to annoy and it's wearing the inside of the rear tires a bit too much. Hopefully when we get the toe on the rear left set right that will help along with the camber on the front left.
