2002 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 130000 miles
I can't get straight answers on why they still can't align the car. I replaced the rear suspension assembly bars and bushings, then I replaced the front lower tie rod ends, then I replaced the front lower ball joints. Now they say I need front struts to get the Camber/Caster in spec, and two rear eccentric bolts ($530) to get the rear toe in spec. It's the rear eccentric bolts that have me baffled. They're JUST BOLTS. I don't see how they could possible effect the rear toe. They are bolted through the new rear suspension assembly bars with new bushings. I see the large adjusting nut, but I can't see how turning that nut would move anything related to rear toe. Nor can I see how paying someone $530 to replace two bolts would align the car. I think the part I am looking for is an " Alignment CAM bolt kit" but I'm not sure. Can someone explain how a bolt goes bad?
