    I just recently purchased a 348TS and noticed that the rear tires were severely worn on the insides of both tires. I'm sure it's due to alignment, but how do you align the camber/caster on the rear? Do you shim the A-Arms on bottom or top? Any help would be appreciated.

    The rear camber / track is set by adding or removing the shims (item no. 1)behind the suspension pick-ups. There is no castor angle for the rear.

    Camber and track data can vary, depending on what tyres you have.

    The basic settings for the rear are :-

    Camber - 1° 50' to - 2° 10'

    Rear toe-in 2.5mm to 3.5mm

    Hopefully next year, but depends on the Italians, if ever you're completely stuck for a part let me know.
