Trouble with alignment
#21
Thanks or the kind words, guys!!!
It turned out far from perfect but I can live with it. Caster is 1.59 positive. The guy didn't wanna go further because he couldn't get it the same on both sides if he went over -.59. I know which shop I won't go to next time. Smile

I'm curious to know why the expert couldn't shorten the strut rod(s) a bit more to give you more + Caster?

+2 - +2.5 would be more ideal unless you have a manual steering box.

I'm not sure at +1.5 Caster the car will be stable as you're on the edge.

You can always add a shim to the UCA to get a bit more as Midlife mentioned.

If I added a fraction of an inch anywhere on the uca my front tires would no longer turn. Smile
