Rear lower wishbones

Postby johan13 on Wed May 11, 2011 8:24 am

I have not taken my car in for wheel alignment but I “seem” to have a “toe-out” problem at the back wheels? Is this a common problem and should I consider changing to adjustable wishbones because it seems to be the only way to fix the problem?

Before you do anything, check the alignment with tools, the eyes can be VERY deceiving looking at a Lotus 7 type car.
