RE: [DMCForum] Speak slowly, use small words (On Topic)



Sounds like camber, as long as the lug wear is smooth. If it's "feathering",
meaning the lugs have taken on a wedge shape, then it's probably toe.

A -good- alignment tech can fix just about any problem, but pretty much the
D is just adjustable on the toe if I recall correctly.  There are special
ball joints available that allow you to set the camber on non-adjustable
vehicles.

This page has some tire wear pics for you.

Someone please explain DeLorean steering geometry to me. I am
familiar with some terms: Toe, caster and camber.

Due to the wear on the inner edges of my tires, I suspect they are
pointed like this:   //  \\  (If you're looking at the car head-on)

Instead of: ||   ||  (Ditto)

Which of the above 3 is responsible for this, and is it adjustable in
the DeLorean?

My new tie-rod ends will be here soon and I'm going to take it to the
alignment joint up the road Friday morning. Before I do, I want to
know if I have something else that's really wrong.

I have read the tech section of DMC news and a few other places and
find the explanations lacking.

Thanks,

Rich A.
