Cupping in rear after lowering

Has anybody noticed cupping on the inside of the rear tires after lowering? I noticed my rears wearing fast and felt them. On the inside it's cupped. Not bad, but noticable.

What were the numbers after realignment?  The toe curve is more aggressive the further into jounce you put the suspension, so from rest when lowered, you will gain more toe-in for 1in of travel then you would if you were not lowered.  Could be that you need to run a bit less toe-in on a lowered suspension then stock.

Could also be that the suspension is now under-damped with the stiffer spring rates and the tires are bouncing a bit.

So Waldo: If we load the stock suspension (say: four adults and a fully loaded trunk) and go across Country, do you think we will have to keep an eye on the rear tires?
