    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.
    Wheel Alignment Specifications

    • Camber - Measurement in degrees.
      • Front: 0 (range -1 to 1)
      • Rear: 0.33 (range -1.33 to 0.67)
    • Caster - Measurement in degrees.
      • 1.17 (range 0.17 to 2.17)
    • Toe-In - Measurement in inches (mm).
      • Front: -0 (0)
      • Rear: 0.08 (2.0)
    • Toe-In - Measurement in degrees.
      • Front: 0.00 (range - 0.16 to 0.16)
    • Toe-Out On Turns - Measurement in degrees.
      • Inner: 41.00
      • Outer: 33.50
    Torque Specifications Ft. Lbs (N.m)

    • Rear Control Arm Adjusting Bolt: 48 (65)
    • Spindle Nut: 136 (185)
    • Tie Rod Lock Nut: 41 (55)
    • Wheel Lug Nuts: 80 (108)
    hope this helps you out.

    The tires are wear out on the inside and dishing on the outside, is this a sign of wore out struts causing the front to be out of line. What is the fix needed replacw struts in front and new tires

    Wearing on the inside can be caused by an excessive camber angle or excessive toe out, or both. Either of these can be caused by worn or damaged suspension parts. Camber affects Caster, and Camber and Caster affect Toe. Toe affects the Thrust Angle. (These are the major suspension angles involved in wheel alignment) The "dishing" or "cupping" is caused by what is sometimes called "wheel-hop" this can be caused by worn-out struts or shocks and can also be caused by tires that are seriously out of balance.

    The recommended "Fix" would be to inspect the ENTIRE suspension system to check for loose and/or worn and/or damaged parts. Replace any of these parts as necessary. Then replace and balance the tires and head straight over to the alignment shop to have all of your suspension angles set to manufacturer's specifications. (Most tire stores also have an alignment machine)

    What type of shocks are required for a 1999 ford explorer

    I was searching and there are several applications of shocks, first write the vin# down as you need to know the engine code which would be the 8th digit from the right. It would be a letter
    " X " or " E" a letter E is a 4.0 sohc...... A letter X i believe is 5.0 motor also there are different suspensions, some have trac control, air suspension in the rear and I dont know cause I cant see it. so your best bet is to stop by a ford dealer and ask the service techs if you want original equip. smooth shockin !

    What kind of suspension or shocks does this year have

    The way to find out is you have to look on the RPO label.This is usually located in the trunk on the spare tire cover.It is about the size of a credit card and it is white.It will have a bunch of numbers and letters.You need to look for the f codes ie.FE1,FE2 and so on.Post back with the code and I can tell you what suspension you have in your vehicle or you can call the parts department at a dealership and they will tell you what suspension you have.Hope this helps.Good luck.

    1999 celica , when going over bumpy road surface get clunken noise from rear end ?

    Sounds like you have worn bushes in one of the suspension components. Check the swinging arms for movement or undue slack in the mountings.. If you find any then you may be able to replace the bushes yourself as long as they are not steel cast types, for those you will need a press. Be very careful when releasing the suspension and make sure you restrict the suspension itself, coil spring compressors or release the tension on torsion bar systems. Leaf springs should have a centre bolt holding the spring together and make sure you check all joints for movement including sideways movement. If you are in any doubt about undertaking this repair, DON'T. Seek a professional as injuries can result from incorrect procedures..
