Alignment and a little exhaust work

Had the car in to a local shop for an alignment after my coilover install. For such a small town, this outfit has a really high tech Hunter alignment system. It was the first time I've actually seen an alignment done. Very interesting. I asked about the toe at the right rear and the tech said it's so minor that I shouldn't worry about it. I'm guessing if I want to bring it back in, I might need a shim or something since there's no adjustment at the back - at least that's my understanding. Open to the opinions of those familiar with the rear suspension. While I was there, I got all 4 tires balanced.

I also had them remove a clamp on my exhaust and weld the connection. It basically gained me about an extra 1" of clearance. I will likely be dropping the car a bit in the near future, so they know I might be back for a small camber and toe tweak.

I was impressed when I was only charged $120.00 for all the work.

I get the alignment shim disc and minimize that variance but thats me. You probably never feel that unless you drive hard

Yeah, as shim at the RR will help put both of those readings closer to spec.

Thanks gentlemen! I will look into a shim to get the rear right wheel back within spec.

You have the read out, so you know (or can figure out) how to put the shim in. Watch some youtube videos on installing them. It'll save you some money by installing it yourself.

For sure. I assume shims are generic? Will investigate. Thanks!

The shim has to fit the wheel bearing mounting flange pattern.
