Neg camber on rear?

So I just got an alignment after installing my KW V1's and letting them settle a bit.

I got the report and it states my rear camber is -2.3... is that going to be pretty bad on my tire wear?

Is there a way for me to adjust this myself? Or would it mess with the toe?

the rear is adjustable by a few tenths of a degree or so via the eccentric bolts on the inner control arm. Factory spec is around -1.8 I think, you may be able to get it closer to that.

What is your rear toe setting? tyically, negative camber doesn't cause much wear, *as long* as your toe settings are very mild. but agressive toe with negative camber will eat tires.
