No joke, my saab mechanic pointed me to euro tire. The guy at euro tire had zero interest in helping with the rear. I asked how do I fix this he said "I dunno find a used one possibly" .The old school places would correct camber on rear beam axles by either jacking up on them from the underside (to make the camber more positive) or putting a chain on them and pulling down (to make the camber more negative).
Does your Saab specialist have a recommended alignment shop? If they don't do it themselves, they should know someone who can do a proper job on older Saabs.
My thoughts exactly. Seems to be a common thing around here in jersey. Oddly enough the local mechanic claims he heated the joints on tie rods a few months ago to do the alignment. He told me he replaced the bolts etc.. maybe he didn't...I have a big Jack my dad used for his van. Long and yellow.. don't have stands.. I'm decent with a socket wrench... could do the open end wrench and how big a vise?That's all BS from people who don't know or don't want the work. The shim process is easy and fixes negative camber. The tie rod adjusters can be cleaned/lubed (least expensive in parts) or replaced (most $ in parts, less labor).
- Do you have a jack and stands?
- Are you handy with a socket wrench and maybe an open end wrench?
- Do you have a vise available?
