    Default Location of Adjustment Points For Rear Camber

    I recently had the problem with my rear rubber running off on the inside edge. Along with the warping effect along the same edge. I used this site to gain information regarding the problem which has helped me a lot in getting it sorted.

    Anyway, I wanted to thank the people who wrote the posts which I used. I won't name names, but thanks very much!

    The only thing I could find is good pictures of the location of the adjusters, so I thought I would upload some for reference.

    The first shows the problem on the tyres.

    The second shows the point where the camber is adjusted. This one is located at the inner end of the arm holding the hub and wheel in place. The arm that come square off the back of hub at pretty much 90 degrees.

    The last one shows the point where the toe (tracking) is adjusted. This one is the arm located at the front most edge of the rear hub and is attached to chasses further forward on the car to the camber adjuster.

    The adjusters are show right the middle of each shot.

    The adjusters are also the mounting point of the suspention arms to the chassis.

    If you get your rear tracking and camber checked and they have to make adjustments - you MUST get the front tracked, because any previous tracking done on the front would have been lined up with the rears for reference.

    It just goes to show how important it is to get the job PROPERLY done..

    see the amount of wear on the inner edge..... and it can all go away for the cost of a 4 wheel agignment session..

    if you need to find somewhere to get it done peeps, try www.alignmycar.co.uk

    I had non XL F1s on the rear & they went the same way. Put XLs on now & it seems (fingers crossed) to have sorted it.

    V6 oil burner BTW.

    My camber was at least 1 degree out on both sides. Also the toe was something like 2 degrees out on the near side (show in pic's) where as the off side toe was spot on. The off side is not as bad, but it's still not good if you get my drift...

    Was it affecting your fuel economy much?

    its not the fuel economy thats the issue, its the rate it shredds tyres.

    the phrase 'eats for breakfast' springs to mind...and with tyres at £100 a corner it's a must to keep it aligned..

    Mate of mine had a veccy b estate it was knocking the rears out really bad, i told him to get a proper 4 wheel alignment done to sort it out, but he never did as he said that would take too much time instead over the two years he had the car the rear tyres were changed at least 5 times and he had covered less than 20k.

    So if you getting a problem like that get it sorted as it will work out loads cheaper so you save money.

    He sold it a got a ford focus never mind
