I see so many conflicting answers, but I'll ask anyway. 2007 Jetta. I need more neg camber on my rears for tire/fender clearance. I was at the alignment shop yesterday, with my car on the machine and the tech said there was no way to adjust the rear camber. Said I needed an aftermarket kit or rear hub spacers. I've seen many MKV's with lots of camber here. I saw eccentric adjusters on the lower rear control arms but he said those were for rear toe adjustment. Please, if you don't know for positive, don't guess. How is it done? :confused:

he is looking in the wrong spot.

put the car on the lift, stand directly under the rear spring and face the front of the car.

the correct control arm will be above you pointing toward the front of the car (parallel to the side of the car)

follow it to where it mounts, there you'll find a more hidden, but the correct eccentric bolt.

shouldn't alignment techs have guide books for OEM adjust points?
