2002 996 excessive rear neg. camber

Suspension and Steering

Vehicle Information: Model: 996; Year: 2002; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 45,000;

I bought this car used, 2 yrs. old with 19k. It had the HR lowering springs with (I think ) stock shocks. I'm an occasional autocrosser, but no track; DE yet. The rear tire wear looks like I'm running alot of neg. camber. They will bald on the inside third of tire with about 40% of tread left on the outside. (The fronts wear evenly). The Hoosier A/X tires show an even greater wear by cording the inside 3/4" with no perceptable wear across the rest of tires surface. Two (top notch) Porsche dealers,(Dallas, L.A.), have checked the settings, only to find everything well within spec. Dallas even said it was one of the best "lowered" cars he'd seen. I'll be in San Diego for Parade week, could you suggest a place that could solve this problem? I know I probably need new shocks by now, but this sort of wear has been consistent during my ownership of the car. Would you bail on present springs and new shocks or go to PSS9? Thanks for your great service to the PCA members!
