Yes, the rear is adjustable.

There is supposed to be some negative camber (/ \ as you put it). There should be -1.1 degrees to be exact (yes, it is noticable).

Do yo uhave lowering springs? If so, which ones and how much was the drop.

Also, how much weight does that stereo system add to the back of the car?

The dealership shoud be able to print out your alignment settings (assuming they have it on the alignment machine), so, what is the camber in the rear currently?

I bet the stereo is the problem, more weight means the rear end is lower, and that means more negative camber...

You just might need those Hotchkis camber links... (though a better solution would be stiffer springs to accomodate the extra load on them).
