Thank you both @Breaking Badly and @Flipflp @Dave1078. I will be sure to print out your recommendations and make sure that they get the rear in spec as you say.

@Flipflp, any chance you know of any good alignment shops around you or in SoCal that can do what is being requested? I have Pacific German out by me and will call them up to see if they do alignments as they work extensively with VW and Audi.

Pretty much any alignment shop will be able to get "within factory specs" even with a lowered VW, but I have personally used Auto Union tuning for 2 different cars and they've always done a great job. Qualities of a great job being:

Even camber left to right in the Front and Rear
Even/Minimal Toe for tire wear considerations

I've requested additional negative camber in the rear of one car to avoid rubbing on an aggressive wheel setup and they nailed it.

I also know Emmanuele Design has an alignment rack, and they've done work on my cars in the past as well.

I'd recommend either, tough choice because they aren't too far from each other haha. If Pacific German is close to you, they would know just as much as the two I recommended. No way to lose if you're going to a Euro shop in SoCal IMO.
