Here is the before and after alignment.

The first is before. Funny how they always find shit out of alignment that shouldn't be.

Either way, he said it was the best they could get on the rear. Seems to actually have gotten worse after his attempt. lmao

Hmmm, wonder why they can't get the camber on the left rear to mirror the right? Are you measuring the same ride height side to side in the rear? Fender to lower lip of the wheel measured?

Didn't measure since my last coilover install.

I tightened all the LCA bolts with the car on the ground. Could that be the problem?

Do you have Pedders rear camber bolts installed?

I wouldn't think so as they have to loosen the inner to adjust camber. Then the toe rod to adjust that.

To me, and I have absolutey 0 qualifications, it looks like they only adjusted your toe all the way around and didn't even adjust the camber. The big change in your toe angle on the left rear affected your camber. I say that because it was such a minor adjustment to the right rear it didn't affect your camber at all.

If you are lowered it is hard to get the camber you want out of the rear. The tow and camber work against each other. I have seen more than one tech fail to get good camber adjustment. When I tell them to reset the toe eccentrics to a neutral position I get the I know what I am doing shut the buck up look. Then I get the oh shikies look when it works.

My diagnosis is Dissociative Identity Disorder:

Tran
Val
ICE
Stacey
GTAHVIT
TuTu

Those are the main personalities I have been able to identify.



So Tran how is the FEST coming along?

Maybe I should ask him...

The good news is your timing gear wasn't as expensive as you thought...
