BRAKES

1992 Cadillac Deville • 135,000 miles

I finished replacing the rear wheel cylinders on my 1992 cadillac deville. When I put the tire back on on the rear left tire. The tire is cocked. If you would like I can take a picture to show you. Thanks.

You didn't mess with suspension at all to do the job?

That is not a problem. Once u drive the car it will straighten out

Yeah I did I unbolted the two bolts that are on the shocks. I also tightened it very well.

That was probably an adjustment for camber that you were not aware of. 1 of the bolts (usually upper) when you rotate it moves the hub angle. So try redoing it to get proper angle.

Your only aligning camber(tilt) so just watch strut as you turn bolt head and when it tilts in the most lock it down and replace wheel and see if it's right. Make sure you have the bolts in right hole since only 1 has camber head and that goes in top.
