According to this article a 3" drop should only induce about 1/32" toe. Not saying you are wrong, as I have noticeable toe in as well. Just curious how the math doesn't line up with real world results.

Just to be anal, "camber wear" is caused by the combination of camber and toe. if you had 0 camber the toe would wear the tires evenly just very quickly.
The rear toe spec on the 325 is 0.087" +/- 0.031"... so yeah you may be juuuust inside the upper limit of the alignment specification... but just barely, throw in a bit of bushing deflection and you could be out of spec

... and that's why I said "camber wear" and not camber wear. I was also being anal, just indirectly
