If you start messing with it you will make it much worst then it is, what you need to have done is a 4-wheel alignment, at that time they will know if it just needs to be adjusted or if some thing got bent.Hope this was very helpful.

I need the steps to adjusting the camber on the rear of a 93 ford thunder bird. the tires are leaning in a the top and wearing the tires on the inside.


the camber has to be adjusted on an wheel alignment machine. after that is adjusted, then the "toe in" is adjusted. You cant adjust one with affecting the other. but camber has to be done first.

Hi There,
can I just run this idea past you,,I had a similar problem on a brit car, put the car on axle stands, remove wheels and drums and un-adjusment the parking brake cable, start from scatch on the drum adjustment making sure that both drums bind very slightly, equaly on both sides, the drum should not rotate more than one revolution when spun by hand. (please make sure that you DO NOT get them too tight) when you are happy with the adjustment, replace the wheels and adjust the parking brake so that the wheels lock up between 5 and 7 notches.
Then rebleed brake lines.. if necesary, it worked for me..
Good Luck.

If the shoes are adjusted to where the drum drags on the shoes while turning the drum,then the master cylinder is the most likely cause,some times the master will by-pass and cause this,and ,or will leak fluid out the rear of the master into the booster.

was your car in a wreck since you have own it?
that would be the only way anyone could bend steering or suspension parts.if your tires are leaning out on top,
it would be a part called"lower control arm assembly",
if you stand in front of your car with the steering wheel straight,and your tires are pointing in on each side,or pointed out instead of straight,that would be a "tie rod "
there is an inner tie rod and an outer tie rod end.
you need to take your car to a shop that does alignments,and have them tell you exactly what is wrong,you can even get lower control arm assemblies
from a salvage yard.but do yourself a favor and don't take your car to a MONROE or MIDAS type shop,they are only there to sell and make commissions! Find a normal shop that the owner is the mechanic.

Wheel alingment


That is right; the car has no built in adjustment for toe-in of the rear tires when the camber gets really bad. It has an adjustment for camber, and it can be used to adjust toe-in, but when your wheels start leaning badly, you can't do both.
