Compass negative camber/causing floating feeling

Hi, bought a used Jeep Compass 07 was lady driven and brought to dealership for everything, we have had it for a few days finally made a trip with it on the highway and found it very unstable feeling when at speed 110km/h or around 50mph any twitch on the steering wheel would send the back end veering almost like it was very light and not stable on the ground, on further inspection; compared to other vehicles our rear camber was extreme as in the bottom of the tire very far out and not straight up and down, we suspect this(as the problem) as struts and springs feel fine when going over bumps in town at lower speeds, it only worries us when at high speeds an then you can really feel it, it doesn't like to stay in a straight line. Thanks in advance for any thoughts. - Bkjeep

What "looks" to you like it may be an issue, and what a skilled mechanic finds after a check on the alignment rack and a detailed inspection of the suspension and steering may not be the same.

Most Dealerships and most chain store type retail tire stores that also perform alignments are helpless and clueless with diagnostics and troubleshooting. Find a locally owned independent tire shop, or a local automotive frame and alignment shop and have the Jeeps suspension and steering fully inspected.

Good Luck.
