Here are my alignment specs I received this morning. I have been having some ESP/steering issues as of lately, so I went and had 'er put on the rack to get numbers.
Now I was told that my left/upper ball joint is not shot, but that I should get an offset ball joints to correct my camber. Is this something I should even bother looking into? Are the camber specs off enough to the point of needing a front/upper offset ball joint?
Also, obviously, as you can see my caster is off. Now to adjust this, all I would need are adjustable front lower control arms to add some positive caster? Correct? I believe RK recommends 4.5 degrees.
In case the numbers are not that visible in the pic, they are as follows..
Camber: Left Front -0.6
Right Front -0.3
Caster: Left Front +1.9
Right Front + 2.0
Toe: Left front 0.08
Right front 0.11
Total toe 0.20/Steer ahead:-0.01
Camber: Left Rear -0.5
Right Rear -0.1
Toe Left rear 0.19
Right Rear 0.10
Total Toe: 0.29
Thrust angle: 0.04
I am currently running the RK stock mod kit.
Also, my power steering box has been leaking for a few weeks now. I was told that eventually, even if I monitor the fluid level and add accordingly, I will run into problems and my power steering will fail. Is this the case? Or could I just replace the seals? Are there any aftermarket steering boxes available other than hydraulic assist?
Thanks in advance.
