Re: [DML] Checked my TABs.... AARG!!



Nathan,

Josh P. and the Silver Beast had exactly the same type
problem, except his was a missing bolt.  Trying to
move the wheel either loaded or unloaded will not show
you anything.  We caught Josh's when we jacked up his
car and had almost all the weight off the wheel, but
it was still in contact with the ground.  By grabbing
the wheel in the 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock positions and
pushing and pulling, we were able to move the whole
assembly about a half an inch.  (NOT GOOD)  If your
shims are missing, then every bump you hit while
driving is causing the trailing arm to move fore and
aft this same way.  I'd recommend you get it fixed
ASAP, which will include a new rear end alignment.
