Toed In Rear Wheel
Hey all. First time poster. I noticed this past weekend that both of my rear springs had, at some point, just snapped in half (my front ones blew last year =/). To save some money, I bought two quick-strut assemblies and, with the help of my trusty repair manual, my buddy and I replaced the old ones by ourselves. My problem is that my rear passenger side tire now seems to be slightly toed in. It’s not straight with the body of the car and points in roughly 4-5 degrees. It took a lot of banging, pulling, and a few swear words to get the old struts out and the new ones in and now I’m wondering if we knocked something out of place. Everything seemed to go back together correctly. We torqued everything down.
1.)Will a wheel alignment help me, or do I need to get something fixed first?
2.)My repair manual gives a torque range instead of a specific number (ie 35-45 ft-lbs). We went middle of the road on everything, but could this somehow be the issue?
Any thoughts, comments, or prayers would be appreciated.
