Alignment: Description and Operation
Proper vehicle wheel alignment is the proper adjustment of all interrelated front and rear suspension angles. These angles are what affects the handling
and steering of the vehicle when it is in motion.
The method of checking a vehicle's front and rear wheel alignment will vary depending on the type and manufacturer of the equipment being used.
Instructions furnished by the manufacturer of the equipment being used should always be followed to ensure accuracy of the alignment, except alignment
specifications recommended by Chrysler Corporation MUST ALWAYS be used.
CAUTION: Do not attempt to modify any suspension or steering components by heating or bending of the component.
Wheel alignment adjustments should always be made in the following sequence, to ensure that an accurate alignment is performed.
1. Adjust rear camber to be at the preferred setting specification.
2. Adjust rear wheel Toe to be at the preferred setting specification..
3. Adjust front wheel Toe to be at the preferred setting specification for individual wheel Toe and for total Toe.
4. Toe is measured in degrees or inches and is the distance that the front edges of the tires are closer (or farther apart) than the rear edges.
5. Thrust Angle is defined as the average of the Toe settings on each rear wheel. If this measurement is out of specification, re-adjust rear wheel Toe
so that each wheel has 1/2 of the total Toe measurement. When re-adjusting, do not exceed the total Toe specification.
