Front measuring point Measure the distance from the ground to the center of the front side lower suspension arm mounting bolt.

Rear measuring point Measure the distance from the ground to the center of the rear side lower suspension arm suspension member side set boft. NOTICE:

Before inspecting the wheel alignment, adjust the vehicle height to the specified value.

If the vehicle height is not the specified value, try to adjust it by pushing down on or lifting the body.

2. INSTALL CAMBER-CASTER-KINGPIN GAUGE OR POSITION VEHICLE ON WHEEL ALIGNMENT TESTER

Follow the specific instructions of the equipment manufacturer.

3. INSPECT CAMBER, CASTER AND STEERING AXIS INCLINATION

Camber, caster and steering axis inclination: 195/60R15, P195/60R15 tire:

Camber

Right-left error

-0*28' ± 45' (-0.47* ± 0.75') 45' (0.75°) or less

Casier

Right-ielt error

2"07' -r. 45' (2.12* ±0.75*) 45' (0.75*) or less

Steering axis inclination

Righl-lefl error

13*09' ± 45' (13.15* ± 0.75*) 45' (0,75*) or less

205/55R15, P205/55R15 tire:

-0*29' ± 45' (—0.48* ± 0.75*) 45" (0.75*) or less

Caster

2*02' ± 45' (2.03* * 0.75"} 45' (0.75') or less

Steering am inclination

Right-left error

13' 12' ± 45' (13.20° ± 0.75") 45' (0.75') or less

If the caster arid steering axis inclination are not within the specified values, after the camber has been correctly adjusted, re-check the suspension parts for damaged and/or worn out parts. 4. ADJUST CAMBER NOTICE:

After the camber has been adjusted, inspect the toe-in.

(a) Remove the front wheel.

(b) Remove the 2 nuts on the lower side of the shock absorber.

(c) Coat the threads of the nuts with engine oil.

(d) Temporarily install the 2 nuts.

(e) Adjust the camber by pushing or pufiing the lower side of the shock absorber in the direction in which the camber adjustment is required.

(f) Tighten the nuts.

Torque: 153 N m (1,560 kgfcm, 113 ftlbf)

(g) Install the front wheel.

(h) Check the camber. HINT:

Try to adjust the camber to the center of the specified value.

Adjusting value for the set bolts is 6' - 30' (0.1' - 0.5°). If the camber is not within the specified value, using the following table, estimate how much additional camber adjustment will be required, and select the camber adjusting bolt.

(i) Do the steps mentioned above again. Between step (b) and (c), replace 1 or 2 selected bolts.

HINT:

When replacing the 2 bolts, replace 1 bolt for each time.

5. INSPECT TOE-IN Toe-in:

Tor-in

A + B: 0* £ 12 (0* ± 0.2")

(toial)

C - D: 0 --"2 mm (0 t 0.08 in.)

If the toe-in is not within the specified value, adjust it at the rack ends.

6. ADJUST TOE-IN

(a) Remove the rack boot set clips.

If the toe-in is not within the specified value, adjust it at the rack ends.

6. ADJUST TOE-IN

(a) Remove the rack boot set clips.

(b) Loosen the tie rod end lock nuts.

(c) Turn the right and left rack ends by an equal amount to adjust the toe-in.

HINT:

Try to adjust the toe-in to the center of the specified value.

(d) Make sure that the lengths of the right and left rack ends are the same.

Rack end length difference: 1.5 mm (0.059 in.) or less

(e) Torque the tie rod end lock nuts. Torque: 74 Nm (750 kgf cm, 54 ft lbf)

(f) Place the boots on the seats and install the clips. HINT:

Make sure that the boots are not twisted.
