Rear tire camber??

864 Views 13 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  supraman
Hi all. Just picked up my 2023 HRV sport, and I've noticed the rear wheels seem to have some camber to them. Is this normal? I have already taken it back to the dealership and they did an alignment, which they did end up finding a toe issue with the right rear, but said the camber in the rear is within spec. Has anyone else seen this?

If it's within spec and there is no odd tire wear or squirrely handling I wouldn't worry about it. If you think that's excessive negative rear camber check out the rear camber on a Honda Element sometime.
or the 8th Gen Civics - they actaully had a TSB- and replaced the upper rear arms because of this.
Yes these kits have been around for many years for many cars.....Dealers know about it but a lot of them dont want to spend the time to do it right...because it does take time to install and remove shims to get it right along with a alignment check after each shim is added or removed...

if its not adjustable they will have to make new parts - IF they decide HONDA is in the wrong.
The aftermarket world did come up with adjustable type control arms for this civic - BUT their intent was to allow adjustablity for lowered/racing suspensions etc.

This is not for the HRV.. It is for the civic and yes they used control arms on them along with the 07 accord I had... The HRV is a sold axle and the shim kits WILL work...getting the dealer to do it is another thing...
i know- the OP is for a 2023- which does have an IRS - it is based upon the latest Gen CIVIC. I was posting how HONDA might address the situation -
( and the previous gen HR-V (2016-2022) does not have a solid rear axle either, but i know what you mean)
