What suspension have you got? You can't fix camber at the rear iirc, though I know you can get plates on the astra, which I had.

Not a lot of garages will do camber set up. You might be better off getting a gauge and doing it yourself to bring it back to stock, as it means jacking up the car, setting the bolt, dropping the car and waiting for it to settle, reading the camber, and repeating till it's as desired and the same on both sides.

Had this problem two months ago.. Then had the toe and camber set at the garage.. Even my ta technix coilies are adjustable camber.. I found a garage near me that did it for about £60.. It's hard to find places that touch lowered cars because half the ramps I couldn't get up lol.. Had it all fixed after going through 3sets of front tyres.. Then when I thaught it was all fixed my cv joint basicly blew up lol well the bearing cage had shattered and all the bearing came out.. This as far as I'm aware was due to the wear on the cv joint when I drive it for so long off camber.. It was only the short drive shaft side tho.. Maybe because the angle was worse on the shorter one?

Dunno if this helps.. But I'd take it to a garage asap! Nearest one for me was a 45 min drive
