    I look underneath and on the sides looking for posible sign of accident or something bent but then i saw nothing really suspicious everything looks fine, but then the handling seems so unusual seems like the camber are way too positive creating a feeling of "wandering" specially during turns. i dont want to bring it for an alignment service and just adjust the toe since i believe this wont solve my problem. do you have any other idea of what can i posibly do?

    I have the same problem. All tires wear fine except the rear driver side tire. It wears really bad from the center to the outside. How hard is it to adjust the toe and how do you do it?

There is no no camber or caster adjustment on that model. If the car has been in an accident, chances are something is bent. My experience has been that the shock body and/or the steering knuckle is bent. Parts replacement is the only true fix. If the vehicle has had the ride height altered, ie. lowering springs, then there are adjustable upper control arms and ball joints available. These do generally only address the camber angle, not caster, which can also greatly affect handling. hope this helps.

    If you have excessive positive camber, then the top of the tire would be leaning out farther from 90 degrees from the ground plane. You may be able to see that with your bare eyes. There again, no factory adjustments. True that could cause a wander, however excessive negative toe or "toe out" will do the same. If indeed there are no visual signs of damage then to be honest with you, the only accurate way to determine what you are experiencing is to, hook up the alignment machine and see what the readings are. You could also have a tire issue, sometimes called a "radial pull". If you want to check that, rotating the tires can help. let me know how you fare, hope this helps.

I want to know how to fix the alignment on my 1995 honda accord ex.


Before making wheel alignment adjustment, perform the following checks:
  1. Tires should be equal in size and runout must not be excessive. Tires and wheels should be in balance, and inflated to manufacturer's specifications.

  2. Wheel bearings must be properly adjusted. Steering linkage and suspension must not have excessive looseness. Check for wear in tie rod ends and ball joints.
  3. Steering gear box must not have excessive play. Check and adjust to manufacturer's specifications.
  4. Vehicle must be at curb height with full fuel load and spare tire in vehicle. No extra load should be on vehicle.
  5. Vehicle must be level with floor and with suspension settled. Jounce front and rear of vehicle several times and allow it to settle to normal curb height.
  6. If steering wheel is not centered with front wheels in straight-ahead position, correct by shortening one tie rod adjusting sleeve and lengthening opposite sleeve equal amounts.
  7. Ensure wheel lug nuts are tightened to torque specifications
Ride Height Adjustment

Before adjusting alignment, check riding height. Riding height must be checked with vehicle on level floor and tires properly inflated. Passenger and luggage compartments must be unloaded. Bounce vehicle several times, and allow suspension to settle. Visually inspect vehicle from front to rear and from side to side for signs of abnormal height.
Measure riding height. See figure. Riding height between left and right sides of vehicle should vary less than 1′ (25.4 mm). If riding height is not within specification, check suspension components and repair or replace them as necessary.
Wheel Alignment Procedures

Honda recommends using commercially available computerized 4-wheel alignment equipment. Follow equipment manufacturer instructions to obtain vehicle alignment settings. Use following procedures for necessary adjustments.
Civic Camber Adjustment
Compare camber settings with vehicle manufacturer recommendations. If camber is incorrect, check for bent or damaged front suspension components. Replace faulty components. Recheck camber.
Civic Caster Adjustment
DO NOT use more than 2 shims. If more than 2 shims are required to adjust caster angle, check for bent or damaged suspension components.
Compare caster settings with vehicle manufacturer recommendations. If caster is incorrect, check for bent or damaged front suspension components. Replace faulty components. Recheck caster.
Civic Toe-In Adjustment

  1. Secure steering wheel in straight-ahead position. Measure front wheel toe-in. If adjustment is needed, loosen tie rod lock nuts. Turn both tie rods equally in the same direction until front wheels are in straight-ahead position and toe-in reading is correct. Tighten tie rod lock nuts. Reposition tie rod boots if twisted.
  2. Ensure parking brake is released. Check rear wheel toe-in. If adjustment is needed, hold adjusting bolt on rear compensator arm and loosen lock nut. See figure. Adjust rear toe-in by sliding rear control arm until rear toe-in is correct. Install NEW lock nut, and tighten it while holding adjusting bolt.

Camber on left rear is out. can this be adjusted,or does it require replacement of the comtrol arm?


Rear camber is adjustable, most front end alignment shops have the required tools to bring it back to specs, HOWEVER, if you can noticeably see that the camber is out of whack, you probably lost a bushing, in which case, you would need the new arm, and a matching one for the other side, so they perform symmetrically.

How do i put a tension pully on a 92 honda accord it is missing


The 92 Accord has no tensioner, not should it have. Drive belt tension is provided by moving the belt driven accessories. On some components (alternator, for example) there is a pivot bolt and an adjusting bolt, both of which have to be loosened, then the component is moved away from the engine to put more tension on the belt, and held in place while the adjusting bolt is tightened (then the pivot bolt is tightened). Since there is usually more than one belt, you have to look around in order to determine which components have adjusting bolts (some components actually have a longer bolt which is used, by turning it, to move the component away from the engine and tighten the belt).
I hope this helps you understand the system.
