Once that right rear camber adjusting eccentric bolt has been cranked to give the maximum extension on the control arm (to reduce negative camber and force tire to the vertical) there is no more adjustment. Therefore if you bought a "lifetime" alignment it would be worthless on the rear. Rear toe is not going to do anything to reduce negative camber induced tire wear. I was not aware there WAS a way to adjust rear toe on a RAV4 gas or hybrid. Can someone please enlighten me--are shims used behind the rear hub assembly?At least getting your toe angles closer to center, and especially out of the red, will go a long way toward reducing the tire wear caused by the excessive negative camber. Here and in Dallas we have been paying $75 for a one year alignment, and about $150-$175 for a lifetime alignment at Tires Plus or Firestone. We got the lifetime alignment and have it aligned every 10,000 mile oil change. Maybe you could get a better deal.
