it would consist of adjusting toe.

and if you point out you have camber adjustment, they can adjust that too.

but toe is the most important. of course you can adjust rear toe...

adjust camber first, then toe. As for how much camber you want, it depends on what you're doing with the car. If it's mainly street driven and won't see the track or AutoX then you will probably want somewhere between -1 and -1.5. If you will be tracking the car a lot and don't care about the downsides of having more camber (straight line accelleration and braking are effected slightly) then you can go with more negative camber. Either way, have them set the toe at zero front and rear, not just "within spec" so that you avoid tire wear.
