Driving down the road, the car pulls to the right. I took it in to get an alignment. The mechanic said he did the best he could. It did make alot of difference, there is very little pull now, but still some. He said he got it within 1/2 deg, I am not sure if it was the caster or the camber. Anyway, he said to get it better he needed to pull a shim out on both sides but there was only shims in one side. He said I possibly could replace something that would give us some more play. What should I replace? All the bushings or what?
Jb, I run into this problem fairly often. Your mechanic is most likley correct. If you have never replaced the bushing(A frame/upper and lower contol arms)They probally need to be. Also the "saddle" on almost all Chevys tend to spread over the years, they sell offset upper control arm shafts...........Hope this helps.....Steve
