Default rear toe adjustment

I just took my 2006 pt cruiser for an alignment after installing eibach springs.I was told that the toe is off on the rear drivers side tire.Does anyone know of a kit that i can buy to correct this?

If the person doing the check doesn't know, take it somewhere else.
These are flange shims available and used on many FWD vehicles.

Yes, that is true, but he may have adjusted it as far as it can go. He probably needs a Camber Adjustment Kit. Here is the one made for the Eibach springs:

rte662006 said REAR toe so that would be shims. I'm thinking that lowering the rear would not affect the "toe" setting and that it came from the factory that way and would try to get the dealer to do the work.

Yup. Rear uses shims - I hit a pohole with my '02 and it needed shims for rear.

Years ago I had a Plymouth Reliant and when I had an alignment done, they told me it needed a certain thickness shim placed under the upper right bolt holding the bearing to the axel on the right side of the car. They said it was not out by much and they knew I could do the work ( unbolt bearing housing and install shim and re-assemble). Their cost was high because it was a bit time consuming.The cost of the shim was under a dollar.
