I had my ute wheel aligned today and they couldn't get the rear camber/toe correct even with a camber kit installed. My only guess is a previous accident.
Is there anything I should check before spending time and money on another rear cradle?
Thanks in advance.

How incorrect is it?
And by camber kit, which kit? Is it a 2 or 4 point setup?

Whats wrong with it?
It's never going to be perfect being IRS.
The suspension tech said he wasn't happy with the out come, sighting possible collision. I am no expert but the way I read the printout, the toe is perfect but camber is out.
I guess my question is it too far out?
Thanks.

If it tracks straight and drives fine i'd back the other one off until it matches the other side.
If it's copped a whack you'd expect both camber and toe to be out.
Unless you have coin to spare swapping in a used trailing arm or unknown quality i'd adjust it and live with it.

Thankyou. You are 100% correct. A used trailing arm or indeed a used cradle may not even fix.
I will be going option A and just see how it goes.
