MK1 escort tracking advice

Recommended Posts

Morning,

Going to get my wheels balanced and tracking sorted due to a wheel wobble around 55mph

Tracking wise what am I best asking the garage to set it up to?

Car is currently lowered on rear with de cambered spring, and front is on capri legs (coil over tops on) with roller top mounts lowered to match the rear, twin cam antiroll back etc if that's makes a difference?

Any advice is great - Thanks :D

Suspension components are largely immaterial unless they are adjustable. If the place is any good they will have data books with set-up requirements for your Mk1 - basically toe in / out only via the track rod ends on the rack.

Toe in (production and service setting)  0.0 to 0.250 in. (0 to 6.4mm.).

Hope that is total and not per side - would look well knock knee'd with 6.4mm per side LOL!
