i have an 86 / F40 replica conversion. The rear tires are 315/45-16, and no longer made, so I am trying to look after them. I noticed over the last 1500 miles, the outer shoulder of the drivers side rear is wearing prematurely. This is a corner I had a b*%# of a time getting a negative camber out of, and ended up fabricating a larger than normal lobed camber bolt to achieve almost 1 degree negative on the strut. i just finished with the only electronic allignment shop in Mazatlan ( Mexico) and determined the car had significant toe in on the rear ( about 1/4 inch total) They reset both wheels to 0 degrees toe ( according to updated specs I found for pre 88 on this forum) I got home to find out the printout now has my passenger side rear wheel at 2.46 degrees negative camber and the right at just under one degree negative; which I am happy with.So here is the question: Without going back to the shop, if I took out a little negative from the RR wheel, say one degree, how much, and in which direction will the neutral toe change? Can I assume if the drivers side rear wheel is straight, and I am trying to still achieve neutral toe after the right wheel camber adjustment, if I have the same distance between the inside of the two wheels front and back, I still have neutral toe? thanks in advance Steve
