I'm wondering if anyone has a recommendation about what kind of alignment to get for a Loyale 4 WD wagon? LesSchwab always tries to sell a "4 wheel thrust" alignment instead of the standard alignment. I thought there was no adjustments in the rear wheels and making a 4 wheel alignment impossible. Is this correct, and does this 4 wheel thrust alighment make sense for a Loyale wagon?

Thanks everyone.

Don't go to Schwab, they're way over priced and will charge for work they don't do. Seriously, don't go there for anything, even tires. Their tires are rebranded tires from manufactures and Schwab jacks up the price for their name. Other places sell the same tire for a lot cheaper and will give you equal or better service. Don't even get me started on their brake jobs with loose brakelines or their forgetfulness on torquing down lugnuts.

 

The only alignment you can do on the front of your loyale is the toe and most shops won't, or don't know how, to adjust the rear. Call around, explain you just want the toe adjusted and get the best reasonable price with a guarantee. You can also learn how to do it yourself. I do all my own alignments and I have zero issues. Theres a couple threads on how to do this.
