Front And Rear Wheel Alignment Data


IMPORTANT! The wheel alignment has to be measured with the vehicle at a specified height from the ground. This height measurement is called H1 for the front and H2 for the rear.
Instructions for setting the reference height H1 and H2 are at the bottom of this page.

Only the toe is adjustable on the front suspension.
No adjustments are possible on the rear axle.

First identify your vehicle with the help of the following tables and find a type number between 1 and 13.
Once that number is established use it for cross-reference in the next set of tables with the alignment data.

Checking the toe at kerb weight


Graph

Important! Toe changes with vehicle height.

It is possible to check the toe without compressing the suspension to reference height.
Just measure the hight of the vehicle and find the amount of toe required corresponding to the vehicles height.
Note: The value given in this graph is the total for both wheels.

  • P= Toe at the axle.
  • H= Height between the ground and the jacking point ±1mm.

 

Setting the reference height


The reference height is the vehicle height at which the wheel alignment has to be measured.
You can obtain the required reference height for your model from the tables at the top of this page.

The front reference height is H1 the rear is H2 and is measured between the road and the respectiv jacking point.

Usually we would expect that the reference height is lower then the normal ride height. An easy way to fix the vehicle into position is by placing spacers under the jacking points and then compress the suspension by loading the car with weights. (This part is up to anyone's imagination)
