Wheel Alignment For Subaru:
4. Rear Wheel Toe-In (FWD Model)
1.) Using a toe-in gauge, measure the rear wheel toe-in.
Toe-in: 0 ± 3 mm (0 ± 0.12 in)
2.) Mark the rear sides of the left and right tires at a height corresponding to the center of the spindles and measure distance “B” between the marks.
3.) Move the vehicle forward so the marks line up with the front sides at a height corresponding to the center of the spindles.
4.) Measure distance “A” between left and right marks. Toe-in can then be obtained by the following equation: B – A = Toe-in
1.) Remove the cap from lateral link and loosen self-locking nut.
Caution: When loosening or tightening the adjusting bolt, hold the bolt head and loosen the self-locking nut. Replace the self-locking nut with a new one.
2.) Using two wrenches, turn the adjusting wheel and adjusting bolt equally in opposite directions until toe-in is at the specification.
Note: When the left and right wheels are adjusted for toe-in at the same time, moving one scale graduation changes toe-in by approximately 4 mm (0.16 in). Turn the adjusting wheel and adjusting bolt equally in opposite directions so the same scale graduations are positioned directly above the center of the adjusting bolt.
3.) Tighten the self-locking nut.
Tightening torque: 137 ± 20 Nm (101 ± 14 ft-Ib)
