Wheel Alignment For Subaru:
5. Rear Wheel Toe-In (AWD 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 the left and right marks.
Toe-in can then be obtained by the following equation: B – A = Toe-in
1.) Loosen the self-locking nut on the inner side of the rear lateral link.
Caution: When loosening or tightening the adjusting bolt, hold the bolt head and turn the self-locking nut. Discard the loosened self-locking nut and replace with a new one.
2.) Turn the adjusting bolt head until toe-in is at the specification.
Note: When left and right wheels are adjusted for toe-in at the same time, the movement of one scale graduation changes toe-in by approximately 3 mm (0.12 in).
3.) Tighten self-locking nut.
Tightening torque: 98 ± 15 Nm (72 ± 11 ft-Ib)
