car wanders all over, tossed like ragdoll, ANSWERS!

maybe it was covered, maybe not. i have posted that along time ago. but i just read in the FEB. 08 HOTROD Pit Stop the suppozed CURE.
it is titled WONDERING WHY IT WANDERS. covers what you should set your alignment at to cure it. about 2 degres POSITIVE caster. +1.5 degrees left, +2 right. and with stock suspension (like my car) and wide meats .5 negative camber, 3/32's toe in on both sides. i would do it to my tempest but i'm sellin it off.

Good info bull. On my straight axle cars I always crank in 2deg caster w/ wedges if needed, and 1/8" toe in using a tape measure. I take it to a front end shop and have them do the camber 'cause it requires bending the axle, but that is a once-in-a-lifetime adjustment. My MII front ends I take to a front end shop and let them do their magic. That's one DIY I have never bothered with.
