Actually most newer FWD cars do have some adjustments on the rear. I recommend a 4 wheel alignment on a FWD or AWD, but not a RWD. A 4 wheel alignment on a FWD is more for checking the rear tires are straight and not out of alignment from a worn suspension component or something is loose. The front 2 wheels are then aligned to the rear tires to prevent "Crabbing" and let you car drive straight. HTH's. But if your tires are wearing evenly and car is tracking straight, then no need for an alignment.
