REAR WHEEL ALIGNMENT ADJUSTMENT

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

Note

If a wheel alignment has been performed, or if suspension or underbody components have been removed/installed or replaced, be sure to perform the following initialization procedure in order for the system to function normally:


  • Perform zero point calibration of the yaw rate and acceleration sensor.

PROCEDURE


  1. INSPECT TIRES

  2. MEASURE VEHICLE HEIGHT

  3. INSPECT CAMBER

    Note

    Inspect while the vehicle is unloaded.


    1. A002BLQC10
      *a Camber-caster-kingpin Gauge

      Install a camber-caster-kingpin gauge.

    2. Inspect the camber.

      Camber (Unloaded Vehicle)
      Camber Inclination Right-left Difference
      -0.51° +/- 0.75°(-0°31' +/- 0°45') 0.75°(0°45') or less

      Tech Tips

      Camber is not adjustable. If the measurement is not within the specified range, inspect the suspension parts for damage and/or wear, and replace them if necessary.

  4. INSPECT TOE-IN

    Note

    Inspect while the vehicle is unloaded.


    1. Bounce the vehicle up and down at the corners to stabilize the suspension.

    2. Release the parking brake and move the shift lever to N.

    3. Push the vehicle straight ahead approximately 5 m (16.4 ft.). (Step A)

    4. A002BIMC02
      *a Tread Center Mark
      *b Dimension B
      B003ZIE Front of the Vehicle

      Put tread center marks on the rearmost points of the rear wheels and measure the distance between the marks (dimension B).

    5. Slowly push the vehicle straight ahead to cause the rear wheels to rotate 180°. Use the rear tire valve as a reference point.

      Tech Tips

      Do not allow the wheels to rotate more than 180°. If the wheels rotate more than 180°, perform the procedure from step A again.

    6. A0027X8C01
      *a Dimension A
      B003ZIE Front of the Vehicle

      Measure the distance between the tread center marks on the front of the rear wheels (dimension A).

      Toe-in (Unloaded Vehicle)
      Specified Condition
      C + D: -0.08° +/- 0.17° (-0°05' +/- 0°10')
      B - A: -1.0 +/- 2.0 mm (-0.0394 +/- 0.0787 in.)

      Tech Tips

      Measure "B - A" only when "C + D" cannot be measured.

      If the toe-in is not within the specified range, adjust it by following the procedures below.

  5. ADJUST TOE-IN


    1. A0027HJC01
      *A LH Side
      *B RH Side

      Loosen the nut of the rear No. 2 suspension arm assembly (on the rear suspension member sub-assembly side).

      Note

      Hold the toe adjust cam sub-assembly while rotating the nut.

    2. Rotate the toe adjust cam sub-assembly to adjust the toe-in.

      Toe-in (Unloaded Vehicle)
      Specified Condition
      C + D: -0.08° +/- 0.17° (-0°05' +/- 0°10')
      B - A: -1.0 +/- 2.0 mm (-0.0394 +/- 0.0787 in.)

      Tech Tips

      Rotating the rear suspension toe adjust cam sub-assembly by one notch changes the toe by approximately 2.1 mm (0.0827 in.).

    3. Tighten the nut of the rear No. 2 suspension arm assembly (on the rear suspension member sub-assembly side).

      Torque:
      100 N*m  { 1020 kgf*cm, 74 ft.*lbf }

      Note


      • Hold the toe adjust cam sub-assembly while rotating the nut.

      • Tighten the nut of the rear No. 2 suspension arm assembly while the vehicle is unloaded.

  6. PLACE FRONT WHEELS FACING STRAIGHT AHEAD

  7. PERFORM YAW RATE AND ACCELERATION SENSOR CALIBRATION
