So my rear alignment isn't exaclty perfect. I ride down the steet staight as an arrow, but my tire wear is brutal. My inside tread is now completely slick.
When i eye-ball it....the rear alignment looks a little pigion toed, but my mechanic told me there's nothing he can do without a chassis pull. And this is because, yes, it was rear ended once (i wasn't the owner).
So my question is, i really want to put a coil-over suspension on this summer. Will a fully adjustable kit, and rear camber kit fix the problem. And if so, is there any other parts i need for a suspension upgrade (rear adjustable control arms, shock mounts? etc???)
From what you have said.. it sounds like your old suspension is completely shot... to the point that your rear tyres have excessive camber.
If you put a coilover suspension on your car... I highly suggest getting a rear lower control arm kit too... which can control camber relatively good in the rear tires... and provide a few other adjustables...
Sounds like toe-in, toe-out is your problem. If they look pigeon-toed, that is. Camber is the way the tire leans from vertical. I don't see why you can't change the toe on the car. I would get a second opinion from another mechanic. Try to find one versed in the rear suspension. There are a lot of things that can be moved around on your rear suspension as it is.
