So I know I have some really bad inner tire wear in the rear of my brat. It's riding at stock right height And I have not lifted it or anything like that. And I can't seem to figure out how it would be that I could adjust this to eliminate the really negative Tire wear problems. Is there a way to adjust this? What about in the front as well?

Hmm...Brat...I am not sure how much is adjustable on the rear. Toe should be, and you probably have too much toe-out, causing the inner side to be "dragged". Aim for 0.0 if you get an alignment.

It's also possible that a bushing is worn out or a suspension arm is bent. Get the car in for an alignment, the numbers usually help explain the problems.
