There are shims that can be moved but unless thaqt car never went outside the will be probley frozen.Is it the toe that is off or the camber you said out at the top,that sounds like camber adjustment.

Attach a vacuum gauge to the manifold and a tachometer to the coil turn the adjustment needle valve in till the engine stumbles, then slowly back it out ''till you obtain the highest vacuum reading and best (steady) idle. then adjust the linkage stop screw, watching the tach for proper idle speed.

Camber is the lean "off perpendicular" of the wheel. This error could be worn control arm bushings or something bent from a collision or pothole curb hit. Jack up the car from the lower control arm, not the frame. This will keep weight on the front suspension same as if it's on the ground. With the tire about 2 inches off the ground and the car wheels chocked safely, now you can check for wear. Do not get under the car !!!! Use about a 2 foot steel bar or pipe, placed under the wheel. Now lifting up see if there is loosness , clunking of the wheel or movement of the control arm bushings.

caster is adjusted at the rear of the lower control arms. Camber is fixed and cannot be adjusted by normal means (though special off-set ball joints are available to do that) Toe in is adjusted by turning the sleeves in or out on the tie rod ends. None of this should be done at home though crude adjustments can be made in order to get the front end reasonably straight. Adjustments are made on an alignment machine that allows precise adjustments to all you mentioned as well as front/rear tracking.

There is no adjustment for the serpentine belt.It has a belt tensioner and is self adjusting.If the tension is loose then you have to replace the belt tensioner.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Testimonial: "This was very helpful. Ididn't know the belt could not be adjusted. So a tensioner is required. Thanks"
