    To do a front end alignment, you need the PROPER equipment. You're talking thousands of dollars and a good bit of training. It isn't as easy as just turning a couple screws.

You set the camber by loosening the two bolts that bolt the strut to the steering knuckle move strut in or out check with camber gauge and tighten bolts when preferred setting is reached most cars are set around 0 degrees.Next you set the toe by turning the tie rods set toe on 0 while steering wheel is in the center.You need a alignment machine to do this correctly

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.

Its pulls to the left

I believe a wheel alignment should resolve this issue. Whether the vehicle is Front, Rear or All wheel drive aligning all four wheels is recommended.

Front wheel woobles

Loose suspension part? Control arm, ball joints, struts? Wheel bearings gave out?
Sounds like too much for a steering part-like a loose tie rod.
Have a garage check it out. Unsafe to drive-might fall off anytime.

I have a 99 chevy lumina and my front passenger tire is wearing on the sides, what could be the problem. Please help

Worn strut mounts to your shocks and springs to a bad wheel alignment. Regard less, inspect to make sure it's not a bad strut mount to the frame. This can cause your front suspension to fail and you'll have no control to where the car will drive to.
Thank you for using fixya and be safe.

Chevrolet lumina strutshow to change

You will need to have a spring compressor available to transfer the coil springs to the new struts unless you choose a quick-strut type offered by the aftermarket. Then it just becomes a matter of unbolting the strut assembles at the top and bottom and replacing the whole thing. When you are finished the car will need to have a wheel alignment.
