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.
