Hi Peeps,

So i get a good deal on 4 195/60/R15 88H Continental Premuim Contact 2's decide to let the garage do a oil change and fuel filter change. I supplied all the parts and put in some castrol magnatec.
Anyway..

The Conti's Go on fine all balenced however i opted for 4 wheel alignment. The wheel alignment go's ok on the front however the rear left wont do a thing, the bolt sits there while the washer which is supposed to stay in place, goes round and round. There fore the left Rear wheel is plus 7!!!

Would this have a effect on the steering as this is out of place, even thou the front alignment is bang on?? The steering wheel to drive straight must be angled about 10% to the right, if i put the steering wheel in the straight position, i drive towards the left.

Would the rear left wheel not being aligned cause me to drive pulling towards the left?

I have located the part i need from ford the bolt kit, for wheel alignment rear price 15 quid not to bad.

Ford Focus Mk1.5 1.8 TDCI 115BHP

Any Help Would Be Apreciated....

Have something to contribute?

all 4 wheels need to be alligned so if the rears are out then so are the front and yes thats why youre pulling you will also tramline where when you hit a bump going straight or round a bend the rear will skip
