    Default Wheel Alignment and Camber Adjustment Corolla 2010

    Today went for a Wheel Alignment of my Corolla 2010 to Wheels and Wheels near Jhang Building Rawalpindi.Because my car was pulling to left whenever i leave the steering straight car pulls to left excessively.

    After checking the Front alignment the guy at Wheels and Wheels told me that Front Right side camber needs adjustment and it will cost you 100Rs i told him to do that he did it by putting a Grinded Bolt in place of the stock one which was installed before and putted a Cam Bolt from the Upper side " I dont know what to say about that location to give a support that Camber bolt sits intact "

    Then when i test drove the car it was pulling towards right then i went to their shop again they changed the side of front tyres and then a guy came with me to test drove the vehicle and after 3 times of adjustment car was ok to move straight.

    Problem after all of the Adjustment Done:

    Right Tyre looks like from UpperSide towards Outside (Like it is Positive Camber)

    Left Tyre Looks like from UpperSide towards a little INSIDE (Like its is Bit Negative Camber)

    And now the Steering is a bit heavy than before.

    Now my question is that should i get my Camber Bolt removed and have the Normal Alignment and no camber adjustment.

    Need Expert Reviews.

    Pic for Reference how they Placed the Bolts Camber Bolt and Cam Supporting Bolt.

    my alignment mechanic is of view that when wheel hits a pot hole, there is no way the camber would stay in place if a grinded bolt is used for camber adjustment....and i believed in that

    why, if you are not satisfied then get it cross checked by other alignment shop. if he would have done it wrong then it will be in front of y. After all they charges 200 Rs.

    Today again went to Wheels and Wheels i insisted them to put my Stock bolt on my car and then adjust the camber one of their Best Mechanic was working today on my car and he said who the hell has putted this camber bolt on your vehicle he insulted the chap who did it.And while when i was going to their shop near Mareer Chowk i braked hard and my car got out of control and gone of the road.That just happened due to a bad camber bolt.

    Ok then i went to their shop and they adjusted the camber with stock bolt and did the toe alignment after all that i test drove the car but now car moves a little bit left if i keep the steering wheel straight and now car not pulling to left if i leave the steering wheel as it was doing before.
