I've been told that the rear tires on my 2006 Kia Sedona are being chewed up every 6 months and that there is no way to adjust the rear camber of this vehicle. I've looked online and can only find camber and alignment kits for the front location only. I was told to just keep rotating the tires. Is this true? Is there really nothing that can be done?

They can loosen the rear sub frame and move it to adjust the camber. Was the vehicle in an accident ?
no known structural dammage. No accidents. Mechanic agrees in good condition.
Ok they can loosen the rear sub frame bolts on the alignment machine and pry it over with a large pry bar to adjust the camber then tighten the bolts that's how we do it . If there is still an issue there is ether a damaged control arm bushing or bent rear suspension part. These are the next steps. Hoped this helped. Positive feedback and bonuses greatly appreciated.
Thank you so much for this detailed and encouraging response. I've printed it out and will take it to our local KIA dealer in Williamsport, PA (the ones who said, "You'll just have to keep rotating the tires" (!) and hopefully we'll get some good results. Other than this issue, we love our minivan.
Anytime . Positive feedback and bonuses greatly appreciated.
