CAR PULLING TO THE RIGHT AFTER FRONT END ALIGNMENT.

Customer Question

CAR PULLING TO THE RIGHT AFTER FRONT END ALIGNMENT.

try crossing the front tires

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Tires have been rotated and balanced, new struts, new driver side cv axle, all tie rods and ball joints, are ok. Brake calipers not sticking. Car has been computer aligned and adjustments made, but continues to pull right.
Expert:  Mechanic01 replied 4 months ago.

right, but you could still have a tire issue and belt separation the balance didnt pick up, I would cross the front tires

I have tried crossing front tires, but still pulling.

I would take it back to the shop and get it re aligned and get the camber to go to the left, set right camber more forward, are you the customer or mechanic?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I am the customer. Sounds like the shop does not know what they are doing. I changed the struts before having it aligned. Correct me if I am wrong, but neither of the (2) bolts that attach the strut to the knuckle (lower strut) are not camber bolts and the shop said it was normal.
Expert:  Mechanic01 replied 4 months ago.

that is normal they do make camber bolts to replace those if there is a problem but most cars are fine from factory without that, that car is very sensitive too and depending where you live the road slope could vary in degrees and they should adjust for that as well, but I would take it back and make them re adjust and there expense. im sorry your having to go though that. I always test drive my cars after an alignment so the customer is happy
