Vehicle height:

Vehicle height:

Measuring points:

Measuring points:
a: ground clearance of front wheel center b: ground clearance of lower suspension arm front bolt center
c: ground clearance of axle beam set bolt center d: ground clearance of rear wheel center

Notice

: before inspecting the wheel alignment, adjust the vehicle height to the specified value. If the vehicle height is not the specified value, try to adjust it by pushing down on or lifting the body.

3. Inspect toein

Toein:

Toein:

: try to adjust the toein to the center of the specified value.

  1. Make sure that the lengths of the right and left rack ends are the same.

    Rack end length difference: 1.5 Mm (0.059 In.) Or less

  2.  torque the tie rod end lock nuts.

    Torque: 74 nm (755 kgfcm, 55 ftlbf)

  3.  place the boots on the seats and install the clips.

If the right and left inside wheel angles differ from the specified

If the right and left inside wheel angles differ from the specified value, check the right and left rack end lengths.

6. Inspect camber, caster and steering axis inclination

  1. Install the cambercasterkingpin gauge or position vehicle on wheel alignment tester.
  2.  inspect the camber, caster and steering axis inclination.

    Camber, caster and steering axis inclination:

If the caster and steering axis inclination are not within the specified

If the caster and steering axis inclination are not within the specified values, after the camber has been correctly adjusted, recheck the suspension parts for damaged and/or worn out parts.

7. Adjust camber

Notice
