SERVICE PROCEDURE

1. Perform repairs on an alignment rack. The vehicle should already be set up on an alignment machine so that rear toe can be viewed.

2. Loosen, but do not remove all three rear suspension beam bracket bolts on each side, as needed.

3. Move each side of the suspension forward or backward as needed. Move the suspension by prying on one of the rear suspension beam bracket bolt heads.

4. Tighten the remaining two bolts enough to hold the bracket in place.

5. Once left rear and right rear toe measurements are equalized as close as possible, torque the rear suspension beam bracket bolts (refer to the electronic service manual).

6. Finish the alignment process and road test.

Vehicle on lift for illustrative purposes. The right and left rear sides of the rear suspension beam may be adjusted for fore/aft movement.
