    Alignment specs

    Where can I find the alignment specs for my vehicle? 2005 GMC Yukon 4WD 16" wheel. I had an alignment done, and they did it with me sitting at the wheel, stating its more accurate. They gave me a print out of the camber, caster, & toe. I just want to know correct specs.

    I always go through at least 2 alignments on a new vehicle within the 1st 12,000 miles. This is my 2nd since I bought the truck new in October. It has a little under 12K already. As the suspension starts to wear on any new vehicle, alignment changes.

    it shouldnt change engough that you have to get it re alligned. Actually it really shouldnt change at all, unless youre running into stuff like curbs a lot.. did you have really bad tire wear or something?

    Comming from the factory the right side tortion bar was impropperly adjusted. secondly as the the tortion bar settles as do the shocks it affects the toe, while not much, enough for precise handling and braking.

    Most German manufacturers, like Audi & VW, recommend an alignment after the 1st 1200 miles.

    Every German or American vehicle I've owned new since 1989 (22), has come mis-aligned from the factory.
