Re: Tutorial: Rear tire alignment - possible lawsuit I had a misaligned 2008 Prius, as I've said here, and a local alignment shop found exactly what Bob did.

  • A rear tire alignment will tend to be less expensive than a front-end alignment for one reason, complexity. In a rear alignment, you are still setting toe-out and toe-in, but that's about it. You will have to make some minor suspension adjustments, but they can be achieved with a wrench. If you need to insert rear shims (spacers) to bring your car's rear end into alignment, a wrench will do. The front end, with its toe-out/toe-in, idler arm assemblies, steering rack assemblies and the like is more involved, since one thing affects another. So, a front alignment will actually be the more costly alignment.

    Rear tire alignment way off wearing tires

    Does anyone know how I can fix my problem with the rear tires wearing extremely bad on the inside of the tires. The outside of the tires are barely used up.

    I just got this car and it seems the rear axle may have been bent by going over a speed bump or something.

    Hopefully the suspension can be adjusted back to a normal camber.

    Any help would be appreciated.
