I was hit in the rear of my jeep during the summer it was all repaired and fixed through my insurance company but later down the road I relized I was getting a front end vibration so I switched my rear tires to the front and this took care of the issue comes to find out I got a alignment done recently and just my left rear wheel has 3.5 degrees of negative camber this is really excessive and I think it's probably accident related. I guess it's ether time to switch out the Dana 35 in the rear or hassle the insurance company. What do you all think what could cause all of this negative camber in one wheel nothing seems to be bent or torqued out of place

Obviously.....the numbers speak for themselves.

The axle isn't out of alignment, it's bent. You need to start looking for a replacement.

I guess I'll call the insurance company and see if they will cover it if not guess a dana 44 or ford 8.8 is going to happen a little earlier then I had expected ):

If insurance covered everything else, I'd contact them...and I'd also have someone confirm it's bent and looks to be the result of impact force with another vehicle or something along those lines.

Otherwise insurance will probably try to get themselves out of it...

True I have a statement from the shop with a print out showing the negative camber but I dont have anything saying it's bent
