Do independent rear suspension cars need a rear-end alignment as well as a front end alignment?

Yes, unless firestone was just checking out the rear wheels on my car for the heck of it :)

You bet! And make sure the place knows about the TOP adjusting bolt in addition to the obvious bottom one. The top just looks like a mounting bolt, but there's actually an eccentric on the inside that you can't see, so a lot of places don't do the rear alignments correctly, thinking they can only adjust the bottom bolt.

That is so true and Im glad I read that before I took my car in. Told me the rear camber couldnt be adjusted and I told them there was a top adjusting bolt 3 times. Glad I wouldnt pay untill they did that part since it was off by almost 2 degrees (-1.92 to be exact)
