hey everyone, Got my wheel Alignment done this weekend at the GM dealer ( Hyundai sucks !!!)

1st Their is no camber adjustment on the Tucson so im out 0.8 degrees negative camber up front!!! and I cant fix it !!!

2nd I had Negative Caster

3rd my Toe was out 1.5 degrees ( Thats 1 inch of toe out )

Now I know I lowered my Tucson so 1st and 2nd problem is my fault but hyundai sucks for making non-ajustable struts!!!

So if you lowered your Tucson go get an alignment ASAP to correct the Negative caster...


Now my Tucson Handles like a dream...

Hi all

Always have an wheel alignment when you are lowering or
rising your car. All measures are lost. Im surprised that camber
and caster is not adjustable - how about KPI?

Greetings

There are camber kits available... its just a replacement bolt that has a cam lobe on it that goes into the upper strut bolt hole so camber can be adjusted.

Oh and caster is the least of your worries. Its the camber you should be worried about. Having too much negative camber will result in rapid tire wear mainly on the inside edge. Caster does not effect tire wear at all but can effect how the car drives down the road. Most front wheel drive vehicles do not have adjustable caster, but there are kits available for some.

I concur with Mitsubishizor about the camber adjustments...I had my allignment done at the local Chrysler-Dodge dealership as a referal by the local Hyundai dealership which did not have the proper equipment to do it due my 19" aftermarket wheels with no outer lip...anyway...the dealer replaced the front struts bolts with some lobe bolts - weird looking design which allowed them to adjust the camber...the car checked out within Hyundai specs...It drives well and the rear wheels do not look like the car was lowered.
