Hi guys,

I just had my wheels "Geo'd" and on the back I got readings of :-

NSR = 0.32'
OSR = -0.02'

I decided to get a geomtry done since my car has been pulling to the right. Weird thing is I never drive anywhere fast (eliminates potholes - almost) and i've never crashed the car.

Is there anything I can do to fix this issue, because the garage I went to wern't sure about alligning rear beam components.

Thanks.

Ok double checked the printout,

The readings I already provided are toe readings Welshy

Camber on the rears is:

NSR = -1.02
OSR = -1.15

Its just a wee too technical for me LOL

I'd start by replacing the beam mountings, and checking that the tyre pressures and wear are even all round Smile

camber variance is quite minimal, toe should be a bit more even but again not a massive amount by the looks of it.

Not worth the paper it's printed on IMO or the waste of cash. I took mine in for review and the variation within a week was laughable.

I'l give Carl a bell Monday and get the beam mountings replaced then. We'll see if that helps and move on from there.

Thanks mate.

I had also heard mixed experiences with Geo machines, but I had loads of pull to the right hand side when driving. I was actually holding my steering wheel at a 10 o'clock position to go in a straight line, and letting go would pull it all the way to a 2 o'clock position LOL

I had replaced the front lower arms but no effect, had the car tracked but still nothing. The geo showed that my front wheels were both out to the right and rears to the left. While the car was still on the machine my fronts were alligned and its made a huge difference.

It might well be that the beam isn't mounted straight. Not unknown.

Geometry aligning has always made a big difference to the cars I drive. Can't wait to get the impreza properly sorted to something decent. At least you can change more than one thing on those Smile
