Yes. My reply here is post #105.Hello,
I'm from Slovakia and I have the same problem with rear wheels. I bought my car in June 2021. It has 23000km on the clock now and is still under 2 years factory warranty. I also bought extended waranty for additionlal 3 years. I had issue with straight driving. My car was pulling to the left slightly. At my verry first car maintenance (13700km) I mentioned that and they checked wheel allignments. With the result that they have to made some adjustment and everything is fine. But I haven't noticed that one walue on rear left was out of the allowed range (different protocol without any highlighting). As my car was still pulling to the left, not as much as before, but still, I decided to made another wheel alignments check and I decided to go to another dealer.
Today I visited 2nd Toytoa dealer to check wheel allignments and results are terrible. Even worse then the first time. I'm looking for solution how to fix this as Toyota refuse to fix it under warranty. It looks like there are 2 options, change upper arm for adjustable one (I found that Hardrace also have one for RAV4 2021) or another option is to use adjustable toe arm also from Hardrace. Does anybody has an experience with any of this? Is it a really solution for this issue? Or what should I do to get the rear wheels properly alligned? I will be glad for any tip, thanks.
Here are my results, but measurement is made in degress and minutes, not in decimal degrees!

Toe arms does adjust camber also. There is an original toe adjustment. So if you add another, the 2x together adjust camber.
Yes, Hardrace does have upper arms dedicated to camber, but I went for toe arms for 3x reasons.
1)It looks like is much easier to adjust the toe on the bottom rathere than the camber arm on the top.
2) Judging by pictures , the toe arms looked stronger than their camber arms. Just my opinion looking at pictures.
3) Should the aftermarker part break while far from home, it will be easier to replace the arm with the original by a general mechanic. ( I have 1x original arm in my bood. If I have my tools with me, I can even change it myself next to the road)
I didnt buy a Toyota just to breakdown because of aftermarket parts.
My alignment is perfect now. I now have 40 000km on my new set of tires with no damages yet ( note that I had to replace the 1st set on 41000km because of the alignment)
Take note of your pulling angle aswell. Even if your toe and total toe is correct, if the total pulling angle is wrong you will have problems.
Alignment is easy when everything is ok. But it can just be as complicated. I have see lots of shops not known what they are doing.
Good luck mate.
