struts

2005 taurus Had the rear struts replaced now the camber seems off. Is there some way to get this adjusted or will it be less noticeable once the new stiff struts soften a little ?

Re: struts

We don't have that adjustment on our Taurus. If that is for the toe I am talking about the camber.You know how the tires look as if they don't sit perpendicular to the road as you are looking form behind ?

Re: struts

If there are no adjusters you may have to fit rear camber kit .

Re: struts

iItook the car in to get an estimate on a bushing kit. The mechanic noticed the bolt on the drivers side strut wasn't tightened all the way. They replaced the bolt and it looks fine.
