Rear wheel alignment in my ea82
Posted 06 August 2007 - 08:03 AM
My soob is a 88 GL and the drivers rear tire is wearing at an amazing rate. Mostly wearing on the inside of the tire. I need new tires now but before that I need to know if I can align the rear or I'm just gonna have to live with it.

can it be done... yes. there are adjustments in the rear. however it is not easy at all. i have spent hours working on it. and most alignment shops will not spend much time on it, before they tell you it is not adjustable. if something is wareing, than something is probably bent.
Hours? I spent like 30 minutes doing the alignment in the back of my coupe and the driver side was waaaaaay out of spec. For the easiest way, I found to pull the lower bolt on the shock after pulling the wheel off, then loosening the 3 bolts that are on the trailing arm, then do my adjustments. If you have a 12" prybar, that will help you move the suspension anyway you want it to move to get it into spec.
