On my 92 SE my rear end is sagging and my rear wheel are tilted outwards at the bottom and its really starting to aggravate me, Is this something i can fix on my own without costing me an arm and a leg?

if the wheels are pointed out at the top of the wheel....just through some weight in the trunk...that oughta squat them back....LOL

Anyways....I know on these cars there'* a certain arm or something in the rear suspension of these cars that get'* weak and rusts out and causes alignment and camber problems..... Crawl under there and start looking around.

Default camber

camber is known to go out on our cars with miles on them.
Its usually a simple adjustment at the struts.
Are the tires wearing on the inside?
