Had a small issues with ice awhile back, and had to get my 2004 venture
back to driving trim. Put on new tie rod and got the front alignment
close. it drives, but pulls slightly to the left. It seems to have
always been a little wandery on the interstate since i had it
It was an estate car. Well i did the string alignment trick
and it seems to have some right rear toe in. I got a harbor freight
digital angle meter cube with magnet, and stuck it on the steel wheels
and hubs to try to check the cambers. The right rear was about .5
negative. A little more than spec but not outrageous. Now i checked
the left rear and it was about 3 degrees negative!
Now i don't remember having any rear wheel trauma, but this was an
estate car and my daughter was driving it for awhile...
So there is not a real adjustment on the rears per say. But i know you
can shim the hub. But, my question is: Maybe the hub itself is bent
and causing both excessive toe and negative camber. Nothing looks
wrong underneath, but were not talking a huge amount of offset either
(at least to be visual).
So, should i go ahead and get a new hub or what else should i check?
I can do most of the work myself, but i don't want to take it in to get
the final 4 wheel alignment and have them tell me i have to pay them
$400 to put new hubs and such on it to do the job.
