Hi, the rear axle on my mk1 Golf is a bit out of alignment (toe around 3mm out of spec on one side, camber slightly out).

Is there anyone in Auckland that can be recommended that can adjust alignment with shims to fix this? Most alignment shops don't seem to be able to do this.

You can't shim it. The axle is bent.
The rear beams on mk1's are pre set when manufactured so would need bending back or replacing.
