Question about 1991 Chevrolet Astro Extended
Can anyone help, i need the front wheel alignment setting for my Chevy astro 1998. Tyre centre here in the UK can not help.
Can't believe they don't have the numbers. but, not being in the
business anymore, I don't either. However if you want to do something
yourself, likely you can get it close by the" is it wearing and where'
method, till you get the specs. Most have an excentric on the steering
knuckle strut mount. Mark current position with something that won't
wash off then turn excentric to move the top of the tire away from the
area that's wearing, and lock it down. this changes your camber
setting. If wheel is off center, center it and lock in place. sight
down tire and see if one is visibly turned more in or out than the
other. adjust that one first to make it reasonably straight by
loosening collar on tie rod end. Count number of turns you made to the
collar so you can return to original position if needed (write it down)
Then measure distance between center of both tires at the front and
rear of each, in the same place. The total measurement should be around
one-quarter inch less at the front. If not, adjust each tire one half
of the difference. Monitor tread wear after you do this and make any
fine adjustments needed. Most of these do not have a caster adjustment,
so don't bother with that.
I'm certain though that you will find a shop with those specs if you look a bit harder, but you may need to go beyond where you normally travel.
If your car is not wearing tires radically, or pulling badly, I would leave it alone till you find a more informed shop.

If it's 2wd +0.1 degree each wheel. Near as **** straight ahead. 4wd is -2 degrees per wheel ie toe out.
