How exactly is it done on the Bonne? I notice that there is no appearent adjustment on the top of the strut tower. Is it where the bottom of the strut bolts to the spindle carrier? I am asking so I can have some idea when I take it to be aligned.
You have to Remove the top 3 fasteners from the strut tower.
Then Lift the front of the vehicle by the body in order to separate the strut from the inner wheelhouse. 0.04 tower adjusment equals 0.1 degree of change in caster.
Do you know of a link that I could possibly go to; to check out what is happening. Or do you have time to explain how it would be done? I have had the car aligned 3 times each time telling them that the steering wheel is turned to the left and the car pulls to the right pretty hard. I am wearing the outer edge of my tires prematurely, and they are not cheap. This time when I go I want to be there with the guy so he can explain to me what is going on. The last 3 times I just dropped it off and picked it up when they said it was done.
I have accesss to the gm service site ( pass word), the details are very long and the procedure involves lots of special tools. Did you get a 4 wheel alignment, thats what I would reccomend? Is there anything specific thats comming out of align? I had the front wheel bearings replaced about 1.5 years ago when I was having troubles, I took in for an alignmment and they went straight for the bearings, no problems since?
I would look at the bearings and make sure they have all the specialty tools and laser aligning equipment.
I told them to do a 4 wheel, and to align to the centerline of the car. So it does not drive down the road like a dog The steering wheel is turned to the left, and the car pulls to the right pretty strongly. Also I am wearing out the outside edge of my tires mostly on the driver side. I am really not sure what is coming or staying out of align. All they tell me when I pick it up is that it is in specs. I should take it back but I never do.
