Rear suspension problem for FWD Vibe base model. Rear wheels are cambering in?

(2005 Pontiac Vibe)
in Acton, MA on December 05, 2012
Car has 218k and running great. well maintained. noticed the rear wheels (solid axle) are cambering in (almost like the axle is weakening), so the tires are wearing the inside edge. with a solid axle, dont understand how this can be happening! what a bummer. any fixes out there? shim the drums? replace the axle? I am trying to get to 250k! Thank you in advance.

Have it checked at alignment shop for weak,damaged or broken parts! Thay will be able to advise.

They do sell camber kits for your car but most alignment shops run because its a lot cheaper than selling you a whole rear axle! The bad news is that an alignment shop must install it because its a case sensitive kit.
