Okay decided to dive into the rear alignment.

parts
shims, one each side (name brands are EZ-shim, northstar, or moog depending on the degree you need)

tools
lift or jacks
10mm, 14mm, 17mm, 18mm, 19mm sockets and wrenches
socket extensions
gloves (faux needs them for his sensitive hands (boom))
impact gun, breaker bar, and ratchet
grinder or dremel (snips or cutters may be tricky)
torque wrench

factory service manual - use the rear axle section for torque values

education required - what is toe/camber along with in/out

measurements needed - either do them yourself or have a print out of your alignment (s)

timeline - about 3 hours for me (yes I am little slower then others)

Pic of what I used (top paper is my average of alignments)


Pic of the passenger side (yes your wheel rides on 4 bolts, the rim is 5)
Auto part Motor vehicle Vehicle Suspension Car


Pic of the fit test (yes you have to grind out the center along with the sides)
Tire Automotive tire Auto part Bumper Wheel
Auto part Tire Automotive tire Engine Automobile repair shop


Feelings and thoughts without data to support
1) camber is closer to zero
2) toe still in but looks better
3) car pulled to the right before I started, but not at all on the test drive
4) pride and joy feeling of a job well done, hell yeah baby

Final alignment numbers - not scheduled yet (maybe over the weekend)

Personally I would leave the camber alone and get toe closer to zero than the massive amounts of toe-in it leaves the factory with. This can be done by rotating the shim.

Rear toe problems is why you had a pull to one side.

I only moved the camber so it was matched on each side. From memory I think the range for camber -1 to -2 degrees and I am shooting for -1.35 based upon my measurements. I would call anything within .10 a success since based upon the other 3 alignments the number will always be slightly different.

I know I’m incredibly late to this but do you have the measurements for the distances between those 4 bolts? And also what the diameter of those bolts is please?
