Can my 1997 2.8 quattro avant be 4 wheel aligned

Took car to my local garage but he can seem to find any way to adjust the wheel alignment. It has cut the inside edges of all 4 tyres badly,It has however had a set of replica 18"x8" alloys fitted instead of the std 16" alloys. I wondered if this is not helping matters. could you please advise.

    cheers this is an idea I hadn't thought of. Ideal as I work in an engineering shop that does alot of rally car work. I only have a 16" wheel as a spare as this is how I bought the car.thanks again,george.

    cheers thanks again looks like the struts have a chamber adjustment in the form of a slotted hole on the top fixing point so should be quite easy as my boss has lent me his electronic camber guage which gives me an instint reading of the face of the wheel. good job and thanks for the help.

Hi it can be done but would thick it will cost you as what you would need to do is get a full car geometry get all the readings see what needs adjusting and get not so much a specialist but a decent mechanic who will spend time on the suspension by shimming or getting special eccentric bolts which will alter your cambers and be prepared to cut tie rods in half and put adjusting bolts in sounds alot of work but once you found the suspension parts neeed on one side of the suspension the otherside is easier or if the 16; wheels didn,t wear put them back and put it down to experiance

    hi george as i said it can be done if you workin a machine shop that would be handy before you start check the clearance of your wheel archs as if you need to drag the camber as i suspect you will out at the top of the wheels [positive ] the wheel may catch the archs when you put a bit of weight in the rear [passengers] worth a thought before you start hope things work out for you yates21456

What are the wheel alignment specs for a 1997 Buick LeSabre Limited

Wheel aligned must be done on a special machine and any spec it subject to front end wear and can be adjusted for that, so base line specs are not set in stone and the job must be done on a computerized optical alignment machine.

How can I adjust my rear wheel camber to be aligned just right on a 2001 Mitsubishi eclipse gt?

You have to take it to a garage for 4 wheel alignment. It has to be connected up to high tech equipment. You cannot just eyeball the camber angle.

Wheel alignment for automobile

Hello. Wheel alignment is the adjustment of the front and rear wheels so that they are correctly inline with each other and pointing straight forward. If they point to the left or right the car will pull to that side of the road while being driven. The front wheels also need to be adjusted to ensure they are not too far forward and riding on the back of the tire, or not too far back and riding on the front of the tire. Lastly, all tires need to be checked to ensure they are not leaning too far in or out of their wheelwell, causing the tires to become prematurely bald. For most vehicles it can cost you $40-$120 depending where its done, plus any shim kits needed to adjust the wheel allignment back to factory specs. Most shops provide 2 or 4 wheel alignment, so always ensure that they perform a 4 wheel alignment. Always ask for the alignment test reports for both before and after the work is performed so you can see for yourself which were out of alignment. Pot holes, curb-hopping, railroad/railway tracks, etc. play a huge part in your vehicle alignment going bad. 4 tires on some cars can cost you $500-1600 to replace, but an alignment check every 2-4 years will only cost you a very small amount, saving you time and money.

2000 Mercury Villager ront end alignment

it i front wheel drive so you do not need 4 wheel alignment. There is no adjustment for the rear wheels. It should cost $50 to $60. Call a dealer, call a local shop, call Sears. Go to the best deal. Good luck.
