General Question regarding Body and Chassis Alignment including Front Suspension and Rear Suspension Alignment.
Even when systems are not aligned at manufacturer's plant, equipment is used to set "tracking" with camber in rear, caster, camber, and toe with front.
My question - "Is this always effective?"
I still see new vehicles that do not track well.
Front left wheel is outboard of left rear wheel, right front is inboard of right rear.
Is this a problem?
Does the industry have a recommended standard "position" (alignment) for front and rear wheels?
Is their an optimum for vehicle performance, mileage, handling, tire wear, etc,
At what point is fuel economy impacted? And last
Which manufacturer has best wheel alignments? Least repair? Etc,
Your thoughts please.
