I own a 2001 Toyota Corolla which I recently took in to have aligned. I was informed that I needed to have a shim installed to correct a camber/toe problem on my left front wheel. When I received my before and after measurements back, I noticed that the toe was out on my right rear wheel as well, which was corrected. I had asked if the shim was installed on the right rear wheel instead. The salesman had a brief discussion with the tech and informed me that it was indeed installed on the left front wheel.
I may be wrong, but I was under the impression that alignment shims were only used to correct problems on the rear axle on a Toyota Corolla. So my questions are:
Is there ever a case where you can/would/need to install an alignment shim on the front of a 2001 Toyota Corolla?
Can you make toe adjustments to the rear of 2001 Toyota Corolla without shims?
Thanks in advance.
have the same problem?
