OK. This is NOT caused by camber wear and whoever told you to get a camber kit is probably the most dumbest mechanic ever to live in the face of this lovely earth we have here.

Did you buy your car brand new? If ya did, did you recalling ever hitting a pothole really hard by any chance? If so, then you might need new camber arms possibly.

Most of the wear is NOT caused by camber. It's mostly caused by TOE, which IS ADJUSTABLE, by the mechanic of course. Most of the TL's(or cars in general) has that problem when the alignment place isn't doing their job right.

And is it only the rear that has inner tire wear? Or the fronts too?

Thing is, your stock camber should be 0-1 degreees. I was lowered(really low) and had neg. 2 degree camber, so something has to be wrong with your car. STOCK CAMBER IS NOT ADJUSTABLE on this car, nor any others as i recall. That is what an aftermarket camber kit is for, to adjust camber. Try going to another reputable alignment shop.
