So, I am having issues with my rear camber or atleast think I am.

setup:
Tein Super Flex Wagon Coilovers - car is 2" lower than stock
STI RSB
H&R Camber bolts - top bolt holes

I am unable to get the camber in the rear to go more positive than -1.5*. I've taken the car to 2 shops now and neither of them have been able to make it happen. I know lowering the car increases negative camber itself but I didn't think lowering it by 2" would put it so far off that camber bolts wouldn't be able to straighten it back out.

My goal was to have a pretty non aggressive camber with -1.0F and -.5R as I didn't want the tires to wear too oddly. If this can't be done what is a reasonable daily/spirited driver and 4 or 5 HPDE's a year setup that wont prematurely eat through my tires too much? Should I just set the front at something like -2 and keep the back at -1.5? I'd rather have the rear move around more than have understeer.

Sounds like the same problem you'd have using Impreza wagon struts -- the strut bolt holes are at different angles to account for narrower track of a wagon. Your track is same of a sedan, so sedan-fitment struts are more desirable.
