Is it the shop, the equipment, the tech person?

Took the '93 LC in for wheel balance and "laser" alignment this AM. (Alignment equipment is some new Hunter rig...)

The tech came out and and said they were only charging for the wheel balance and not the wheel alignment. He said they made minor "adjustments" as everything was good except for the camber.

I was shown a "computer print out - technical alignment instructions" which indicated the camber was not adjustable because of the solid front axle. As I am the original owner and have had the vehicle "aligned" numerous times, how come 13 years into this relationship I am now hearing that camber can not be adjusted? (Warning, rhetorical question! ;) )

Thoughts, observations, experiences, answers are most welcome!

I'm :confused: in SW Ohio...

Note to self, use the search function!

I found this thread indicating I may need some bearing and spindle work. This sort of work was going to be done late spring when the garage is warmer than 40 degrees.

The tech indicated the tire wear looked very good, nothing unusual...

'93, 167k miles on the vehicle, and we are planning on driving to Orlando, FL (and back) next week. Any of this raise concern for the trip?

Thanks.

As far as I know, the only culprits for your camber being out would be:
1) loose/worn wheel bearings/races
2) loose/worn trunion bearings/races
3) worn spindle
4) damaged knuckle housing
5) bent axle housing

Depending on mileage/use you can judge which one is most likely :hillbilly
