How to align front subframe after fitted new rack


The subframe should be self aligning when refitting. A safe way to be sure it is aligned, check marks on the frame from the mounting bolts etc that previously held it all together

How do you align properly the subframe to the body of 1998 ford windstar .


You will have to obtain a workshop manual it will show the specs. Most panel shops have a rail the chassis is fixed to and the frame can be aligned from that.

Check eng light on a 1998 buick century coad p7053 12 shift solenoid . IS IT EXT PART OR INT PART , HOW EASY IS THE REPAIR?


The shift solenoids are mounted to the valve body which is behind the side cover of the transmission. Usually you have to lower the trans to remove the side cover, which envolves lowering the subframe. If you drop the subframe the steering rack must be disconnected and the engine must be held from above because most of the motor/trans mounts are on the subframe

Any car can be fixed. Was it repaired by the insurance company/ body shop? if so call them up and tell them the problem. A body shop should have checked the alignment as part of the repairs done.

My wife hit a curb in her 99 Subaru legacy GT. Now the rear tire is sloped like this /XXXX/ Took it to a repair shop - they said they couldn't find any bent components - yet the tire is wearing on the...


In my experience as an alignment tech at Sears Roebuck & Co., I found that angles can most definitely be changed by hitting a curb or getting into a car accident.

Looking at it with the naked eye doesn't always show how the parts were bent.

If the tires are wearing on the outside, then the camber and possible toe was affected by the accident.

Have the car aligned at a reputable shop like Sears Auto Center or Firestone or Goodyear, and you'll get the same answer.

Ask for a printout of the angles before and after the repair service has been performed.

If the lower control arm was bent, then have it replaced, or have the angles adjusted. A good alignment shop will replace the bent parts, and adjust the adjustable angles for you to bring it back to factory specifications.

A Subaru Legacy GT would be a unibody car, so a body shop that specializes in unibody collision can be a good place to go as well. They are used to rebuilding wrecks from the ground up in order to bring the entire car back to specifications.

One may have to bounce between the body shop and if they don't have the alignment machines, a name brand company like Sears or Firestone or Goodyear that has the computerized alignment machine for doing the final angle adjustments.
