        The front and rear are different due to packaging issues and the different desired geometry dynamics.

        You need to educate yourself a bit more, try reading this book. It's awesome http://www.amazon.com/Tune-Win-Carro.../dp/0879380713. There isn't any 'camber' to see in the rear, camber is a measure of an alignment parameter.

        The front has and upper control arm, a lower control arm, an upright, a radius rod, and a shock/spring that sits in a shock fork.

        The rear has an upper and lower control arm, a toe link, a spring/shock combo, and a sort of trailing arm that it all attaches to.

            Think of them as control arms, not wishbones. Wishbones refer to the shape of the control arm. I suppose calling them wishbones is more specific to the design of the suspension.

            But yes, the rear has 2 control arms. If you're interested to see how the suspension moves around, pull the spring/shock assembly out and move it around.
