yes, the rear camber IS adjustable on the celicas. Some alignment techs don't know that it is because they have trouble seeing the adjuster because Toyota hid it pretty well. If you look above the rear suspension crossmember and right near the inside side of the frame rail you'll see the cam-eccentric adjuster for the camber. I can get a pic of it for you that a club member of ours took while we were installing his sways.
There really is no need to buy the hotchkis rear camber links at all for our celicas. All they do is make the adjusting easier by relocating the adjustment to just inside the wheel.
Here is the pic. Actually the picture is turned on its side so you have to lay your head on your left shoulder while looking at it! :D

Sorry about that Bill. when I was going through the pics, I guess I forgot to flip this one. You can see the muffler on the "bottom" of the pic too.

Actually most "alignment techs" are clueless

The guy who does mone climbed down into his pit (yes a pit), looked at the rear suspension and said. "This is new for Toyota and it's adjustable, how much camber you want again."
