And so after correctly setting the rear tow-in with reference to the chassis centreline you realize that the bodywork must be out of position�. So many cars seem to have the affliction of one wheel further out (or in) than the other. Whether from the factory or due to a rebuild, who knows?

Gary,

Thanks posting your technique and the pictures. I am definitely going to try this when I get everything put back together.

Dennis and anyone with a TR4A IRS thru TR6 do yourself a favor and switch to the adjustable trailing arm mounts in the rear. They make alignment an order of magnitude easier. Keep in mind these adjustable mounts have been around since the mid 70's and were on the TR6 that won the SCCA National Championship in 1976. It took a long time for these to catch on but I think Richard Good is the one really responsible for them becoming popular.

With the RG brackets, rear camber adjustments couldn’t be easier.

Steve,

I bought a set and will be installing as soon as I do some cleaning up and painting on trailing arms and underneath while everything is out of the way.

Gary, thanks for the photos, I hadn't seen this actually done before. Your garage set up is far better than mine but good to see for we amateurs.
