Rear camber bolt, kit

Looking for a rear camber kit, can't seem to find any for AWD. All the bolts and kits seem to be for the front, does anybody know if the bolts are the same for front and rear. The only thing Ive seen is a listing for duralast bolts from auto zone that say front or rear, waiting in response from them. Any input would be great

Is this a common problem? Mine is FWD but I have noticed that dust on the tread in the rear from my gravel driveway is biased towards the inside tread and the tires look like they're leaning in at the top. Are you wearing out tires prematurely? I've only had it for 3 weeks and I'm learning all kinds of fun things!

Good choice on springs and struts!

I haven't noticed a camber issue on mine.

Side note, about to throw some 5mm spacers on front and 15mm out back, should look good.

I will post up some photo links. Not going to lie, the front is nice and flush, the rears could use an extra 5mm. I might put the extra two 5mm spacers on the rear 15mm spacers.

What I find funny is when I talk to car people and tell them mine is lowered, they can't tell unless it is parked next to a stock one. I still have the stock wheels though, you probably have a lot less wheel gap, you should post some pics.

Sorry for the links, not sure who hosts free photo sharing anymore.

Front

Rear, where you can see just a little extra might help

my truck is also AWD I'd have to use same size spacers on front and back correct?

After about 5 or 6 years my FWD SX rear camber was so off it started really tearing through tires. An alignment fixed it but I don't know if the car just didn't hold camber setting well, or if the suspension settled/sagged. It's been a few years since that and it seems good so far. You can still see the negative camber but it is much less noticeable than when I was having the tire problems.
