That is right; the car has no built in adjustment for toe-in of the rear tires when the camber gets really bad. It has an adjustment for camber, and it can be used to adjust toe-in, but when your wheels start leaning badly, you can't do both.

Rearend alignment


Some of the rear independent suspension models will flex depending on the weight inside the car. I have seen others which will tow in after being lifted off the ground. These will reset after a little driving.

The front-wheel drive Models can have shims in the rear suspension and can require Alignment at each end of the car. You would ask for a 4 wheel alignment, not to be confused with 4 wheel drive.

There are bushings in some of the pivots for the rear suspension and the rear struts can come with springs that can become weak. Either can give you excess toe-in.

Start with having your car's Alignment checked. They can tell you about worn parts. Or try to determine if there is play in the rear bushings.

2003 Toyota Corolla Wheel Alignment


The specs are what the manufacturer recommends for the vehicle when it leaves the factory. However that means with the original tires and condition. The caster is not adjustable on a Corolla, so if the vehicle pulls even with the tires switched, there is a possibility there is damage to the strut or steering parts. However, before changing anything, check all tire pressures and make sure the brakes are in good condition. A brake that is not releasing properly will cause a pull to that side. Individual toe is rather meaningless - the total toe is what is measured. You have no king pins on a Toyota so you will not have KPI.
