Take the car to an alignment shop. Aligning the wheels takes very complicated computer equipment. If you are off by even a small fraction of an inch, you will wear out the tires very quickly, and the car won't track straight.

Rear camber


there is adjustment on the track rods and radius rods for the rear end suspension. Check that the suspension bushes and rubbers are in good condition. The rear end alignment should always be checked and adjusted before attempting to align the front end . IT needs to be done on a wheel aligning machine

Toe adjustment camber caster


camber 0 to 1 degree castor 1 to 2 degrees and toe in 1/ to 1/4 inch as different roads are constructed differently with varying cambers (slope to the side for water run off) the wheel alignment is best set by a qualified wheel aligner shop to suit the local conditions

If my alignment is good why do my tires keep eating from the inside


Alignment is the left - right alignment of the front wheel. If you let go of the steering wheel and the car travels in a straight line it is aligned.

Camber however is the tilt of a wheel and its tire on the axle. Ideally the tire should be perpendicular to the road surface (most amount of tire on the road as possible). However if there is a camber on the wheels, in your case it seems there is one inwards, then the alignment may be correct but the vehicle will be running more on the inside of the tires hence your loosing rubber more on the inside.

I hope this helps

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.

This may be due to the alignment being out of specification or possibly loose front end parts throwing your alignment out.

My 20001 f350 2 wheel drive front tires lean in at


On the 01 there is a camber bushing that goes in the knuckle with the upper ball joint( the factory ones wear out), take it to a alignment shop, specify you want the camber set, and they will be able to provide a shim and install it for you,it only take a couple secs to install, you can turn the aftermarket shim to achieve correct camber.
