01 Prelude Se Rear Toe Adjustable?

Hello all, I'm new to site and already have couple questions! Frustrated... Last fall I took off my set of 4 all-seasons and put on my 4 dependable Falken -soft-as-cheese Winters. I was shocked to see the rear pair of rims I took off had severe wear on extreme inside of the Potenza RE92(1 inch from edge). Belt was exposed on right rear Bridgestone. Fronts were fine. I don't want this to happen to my cherished Falkens, so I brought car in for 4-Whl alignment. They said that rear toe should measure 0 to 0.08" and right rear measured 0.18". Left rear was within spec. They said due to vehicle design, Rear toe can not be adjusted. So what the heck do I do now? and what is causing this uneven wear? So I decide to go to another garage - a big name one specializing in muffler and suspension. I show them the diagnostic printout and they say Sure, it can be adjusted (rear toe). So who do I believe and whats me next step? -angry and frustrated...

Also, last couple of weeks, I notice the notorious chirping sound coming from under hood near firewall. This only occurs when clutch engaged and idling - when driving, I cannot tell - too much other noise esp. from loud Falkens... But when I push in clutch pedal quarter to half inch, chirping gone... Is this serious, or do I just need to buy silicone lube spray and crawl under dash and give clutch cable a few squirts?

Re: 01 Prelude Se Rear Toe Adjustable?

your rear toe is adjustable. its camber that is not adjustable on our cars unless you buy an adjustable camber kit.
