Hi,
my 2010 Accent pulls to the left, brought it to Goodyear to get aligned, it helped a little,
they only adjusted the toe,
they did not adjust the camber and caster (which was off by degree or two)
their machine printed out "MANUFACTURER DOES NOT HAVE CASTER CAMBER SPECS)

Car still pulls left down highway straight, brakes have nothing to do with this. wheels are balanced , no vibration.
have to contantly hold steering turned a little to the right, annoying on a 3 hr trip.

any help?

thanks
ps. I emailed hyundai requesting specs, those jerks told me to .......guess......take it to thier shop........aduuuuhhhhhh.

thanks in advance.

John

The reason there are no specs is because camber and caster was set at design time and is non adjustable. If you really want to start playing with camber you'll need camber adjustment bolts. They're often used on cars that were in accidents to bring camber back into spec. Peoplle also use them on their track vechicles to add in more negitive camber to aid in cornering. As for caster unless you want to get into custom machined parts you've got what you got...

In this case, I'd do just that(take it to hyundai). I had a datsun pickup that I had trouble with the tires for almost it's entire life. I took it to numerous shops for alignments and the tires still wore unevenly. It's last 20k miles I took it into a Datsun shop and they aligned it perfectly. So, while I do a lot of things out of the oem shop, I'd take the alignment to them.

[b]So how do you know when reading the displayed measured numbers they is correct ?

If you really want to start playing with camber you'll need camber adjustment bolts.


They're often used on cars that were in accidents to bring camber back into spec.
[b]If the car was wrecked, the part is likely bent, but you said there is no specs, so how do we know it is wrong and we is doing right ? car wrecked, bent part, replace the bent part ...

People also use them on their track vechicles to add in more negitive camber to aid in cornering.
[b]A wee bit more sensible use with stock suspension parts, dont forget they'll go positive too... (Toyota has/had reduced shoulder bolts for making camber changes,, I got a couple around here from I squared up my Celica long ago).

As for caster unless you want to get into custom machined parts you've got what you got...
[b]Run what you got, so long as less the 0.3 degree spread left to right

Ok,, all these chassis builders build a tubing chassis for NASCAR, IMSA, NHRA, IHRA, desert truck, what ever... who sets align specs there ??

They is set up to meet the needs of particular use..

So there are no specs you say... I dont care about that.. I want to know what the current finished align numbers are on said vehicle in question.

FYI, I did alignments, and tossed the specs crap out the window... I set them up straight and square, no excess cross spreads, and minimal toe.. all my aligns handled real nice.

I have been through Toyota Chassis, Hyundai Chassis, Kia Chassis courses as offered by them..

Find them finished align numbers yet ?

I agree there are specs but your average corner tune up shop can't adjust them anyways because their static. As for custom alignments I've done everything from driveway alignments to string box and everything in between and have had a alignment machine show red (out of spec) in every box because of settings I've wanted dailed in. I have a 91 Mitsubishi Mirage Cyborg with a custom front end suspension on it. Theres not even one peice of original equipment on the front steering/suspension setup. Believe me I understand.
