Nah that price is about right. The rear usually uses a arm called a easy arm, or camber arm. They are usually priced at 80 to 120 a piece and then you add in about 30 minutes of labor, which at my job is about 35 dollars. So 150 is around normal price at a repair shop. If your talking about the front I know my honda takes adjustable upper ball joints, which would probably be more in labor, and around the same price as the rear camber arms. Try looking on ebay for part you need, then get a buddy (if possible to replace part needed. Then all you have to do is get it lined back up which in the end will be alittle cheaper.

Front camber CAN be adjusted, rear camber CAN'T.

You can shop for a camber kit yourself if you'd like.

Wicked Tuning, SPC, Eibach, and Ingalls are all brands I recommend. I paid $169 for my SPC rear camber kit when it was on sale. Basically 2 adjustable arms with ball joints, took 20 minutes to install one side.

-1.0* isn't even that bad... having your toe out of spec will cause more tire wear than camber ever will.

I'm looking at my suspension layout, I have a multilink as well, however different car. The upper and lower will give you the camber - so there's bushings to be checked, and a ball joint - play in either will affect your camber. Also the lower arm is exposed to be hit - few things to look into.
Book calls for -30 +/- 30 minutes, so you can see a 1 degree negative and is normal.
