My car is driving fine, but I notice that there is an odd wear pattern on my new tires. The front set is fine, but the backs are starting to scallop. Can you perform a rear end alignment on a Celica? What else could my problem be?

The camber can not be adjusted with out camber/crash bolts.

Could be toe.
What do you mean by scallop?
Are the edges feathering?

Is one of your suspension pieces bent?

I had severe scalloping on a rear tire. Turned out to be a bad strut assembly.

So what is scalloping?

Feathering. Nothing is bent and all of the struts are new.

Shot bushings in the rear? Very common.
