  13. Caster Camber And Toe

    hi I have had my car checked at my local garage for the wheel alignment they used hunter hawk eye to do this, my front caster was out a bit and my camber on the back was out, could you tell me what parts ie lower arm track rod ends and suspension can be affecting this and how to test and correct this problem? On the sub frame there are rubber bushes what affect on the car can this have if they are worn? How do you test for DAMAGE on front suspension? thanks a lot john p.s. some of my toe is out aswell lol
  14. hi i have an s max 59 reg and i have replaced the sub frame as it was bent in a accident, i think i need to align the lower arms but don't know how to do this, there must be some way of doing this because if you loosen the 2 pinch bolts on the rear of the arm, where the anti roll bar bush is the arm can be moved which moves the caster ? so how do i line it back up again ?? and just a quicky is the anti roll bar the same as a ford focus 02 reg onwards does this have an angle or height it needs to be set at ??? there are no Haynes manual out for this vehicle i wonder why ??? thanks a lot for any help you can give john
