How much would a rear alignment be for a Crown Victoria?


I've never heard of a rear-end alignment on a Crown Victoria. The car is a rear wheel drive which means it has a solid rear axle assembly in it. The only way to get a rear-end alignment is if your vehicle has an independent rear suspension setup.

Keeps pulling to the right


check wheel bearing condition and adjustment on the right wheel. Check that the pads and caliper is free on the disc rotor. Check wheel alignment. Check tyre size and tyre pressure . Check for free movement of rear brakes as a dragging rear brake will affect the steering. Check the rear end alignment as an out of align rear axle will affect the front end steering.

E430 rear tyres scrubbing on iside shoulder approx 1 inch


I am not an Mercedes expert, but if your rear axle is not solid from one side to the other, you have one of a number of hinged floating rear axles. These may simply require an alignment, just as the front end requires.

With excess wear on the inside track of the tires, the inside of the tire is pitched down lower than the outside edge. Most rear tires are set to run level or slightly pitched to improve handling.

If your rear assembly is not adjustable, the connecting bushings are worn on the linked suspension or the rear axle bearings have excess clearance.

Go somewhere to have a 4 wheel alignment, not to be confused with 4 wheel drive.

Bent rear axle on a 2006 toyota corolla


you need to google "auto recyclers" and/or "junkyards" in your area. Most of the larger ones now have searchable online inventories. You need to buy a straight rear axle out of a wrecked Toyota, and pay someone to install it. That will save you hundreds over a dealer, but it will not be cheap.

The car will have to be aligned when it is done, so have a shop do it which also does alignments.

My brother went into the ditch with my car, (right side in snow) and was pulled out by a buddy. For some reason they heated and bent something, then pulled it out with the left rear tire (i believe). After...


that car should be front wheel drive and will not have a rear axel but will have an arm of a frame on the back you probably need to take the car to a tire store you trust and see if they bent something if not then you will probably need to get a 4 wheel alignment to true the back end and prevent that uneven wear.

How to align a rear axle on a 1193 jeep wrangler sport 2.5 liter/ 4Cyl with leef springs


There is no alignment provision on that axle. If your tires are wearing on the inside, the axle housing is bent and needs replacement. If one tire is further back than the other, check the pin that goes through the spring, into the locating hole in the spring perch welded to the axle. If that pin shears or rusts away, the axle can move out of position. If the vehicle has been raised, you can get wedge shims to install between the spring and perch to restore the proper pinion angle in relation to the transmission.
Doing that will lessen chances of snapping driveshaft joints.

Sounds like your alignment is out, take it and get it balanced, If not that then something has broken in the rear end causing your tire to wear wrong
