Default A little pull to left...

I oversaw some thread that mentioned it before .

I had my dealer check it out on my car today. The camber was off spec on one of the wheels. He was more than happy to adjust it.

If you sense a little pull to the left, bring it in, it should be no problem to fix.

I created a thread about it....
Was yours fixed???
I took mine in, but when I got it back, it still pulled a little to the left, but not as bad as before.

I complained, but they tell me that it was off but they did do an alignment.

Now I'm beginning to wonder if this is a normal characteristic.

In anycase I'm bringing back in to have it double checked.

The stock alignment is way off. I had camber & toe issues when I went for a wheel alignment at 1100 miles.

I feel like mine is not pulling anymore. But then, it takes a while to figure it out here since the roads are so bad and I don`t drive much.

The way I understand it, shops with alignment equipment can do a print out of all the caracteristics of your alignment. This should be very easy to detect (or maybe not ... i'm an internet mechanic ).

I always ask for a before and after alignment printout "for troubleshooting reasons" and most garages are happy to comply. I actually do it for another reason as well. My wife's Pontiac had vibration that disappeared above 130km/h and bad feathering on the rear tires, so I knew something was wrong. I took it into the shop and asked for a printout. They told me the alignment was within spec. Spec for the rear tires was +/- 0.5 toe. The LR had 5.0 toe. The tech misplaced a decimal while reading the report and thought that everything was fine....
