Negative camber in rear wheel

Today I took the car in for repair of a slow leak and discoverd that the inside edge of the left rear tire had worn down through the metal belt of the tire. I was flabergasted and had no idea the condition existed. I just finished a round trip from Maryland to Miami pulling a boat trailer (yes I mounted a hitch on my 300E).

I checked the alignment rods on the wheel while the wheel was off the car and I did not see anything obviously wrong with any of the rubber bushings.

If the car has, what the mechanic calls, Negative camber... then which of the rods would likely have the bad bushing?

Also... can the rear alignment be adjusted or is it fixed by the rods and their bushings?
