Rear Wheel Alignment

Print

Due to the design of the rear suspension, it is possible to adjust both the camber and toe-in of the rear wheels. Alignment is controlled by inserting 0.01 in. (0.25mm) shim stock between the spindle mounting surface and the spindle mounting plate. Each 0.01 in. (0.25mm) shim stock changes wheel alignment by approximately 0° at 18 min. per shim. Be sure to adjust the rear wheel bearings. Refer to Front Wheel Alignment for a description of alignment angles.
