2005 VUE Red Line
Default Re: Survey: Does YOUR RL have rear camber?

Camber should have little to no impact on wear assuming toe is 0, which it should be on a Vue. I ran 2+ degrees of negative camber on all four corners in my WRX for over a year and had no real wear problems because my toe was always 0. Toe is going to be the more important number to look at if you're shredding tires.

Negative camber in the rear is very common on most modern cars as it leads to a tendency to understeer. The automakers view understeer as safer for the average driver than oversteer.
