When my mechanic worked on an alignment, he told me that I had to replace the "rear lateral adjustment link" -- yes or no?
Thank you.
Do you

Hello -

I have provided info for a 2004 Chrysler Sebring Coupe, V6-3.0L VIN H. If that is not your vehicle then please specify if it is a Sebring Convertible, Coupe, or Sedan, and is your engine a 2.7L VIN R or a 3.0L VIN H, or a 2.7L VIN R. The VIN letter is the 8th digit in your VIN.

As you see where the link connects, if that is worn then you will not have a proper adjustment. Your mechanic seems right on the money.

REAR CAMBER AND TOE

Rear Camber on this vehicle is adjustable. The rear camber on this vehicle is adjusted using the adjusting screw located in the forward and rear lateral links of the vehicles rear suspension (Fig. 7).

Thank you for your quick response.
My car is, in fact, a Convertible; VIN 1C3EL55R.
The mechanic tells me that the newer models have a different set up for the "rear lateral adjustment link" -- to replace mine, he wants to charge $320. That's quite a chunk of money and that's why I wanted to do some research before I get this done.
Thank you very much.

Hello -

Thanks for the info....I can give you a little more info. I have attached what I came up with for a rough quote.....again.....rough. As you see, mine is a little higher......depends on the area etc....but this should give you an idea that he is close.

My suggestion.....replace the other one. You have to get the alignment anyway.....but I kind of do certain things for "preventative" maintenance. I don't want to go back repay for an alignment when I find out the other went bad. Just a thought

Yes, a chuck of money......Look it over, maybe you could replace the parts and just pay for the alignment.
