I am taking my father's 850 in on Monday afternoon for an alignment, and I was hoping to get some numbers to ensure that the alignment is done properly. For whatever reason the Tire/Wheel place that I have gone to for years has always had problems aligning the Volvos, and it has only become worse after I had the TME/IPD lowering springs, and 17" Voxx wheels with 215/45/17 Micheln tires, installed on the 850. I purchased the camber kit for the 850 as well, and they still couldn't get the alignment right. I recently had the sway bar end links(Febi/Bilstein all the way) replaced as well-prevenative maintenance more than anything. Thanks in advance, and I hope everyone has a splendid weekend <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: looking for specs for wheel alignment...... (1sciroccofahrer)

most places don't try to work on camber. front is slightly adjustable, a pain in the neck, but since u have camber bolts, it should be easier. the rear is not adjustable.. they mostly do toe-in.<p>front:<br>camber: -1.0 to 1.0<br>caster: 2.3 to 4.3<br>toe-in: 0.12 to 0.22<p>rear:<br>camber: -1.5 to -0.5<br>toe-in: -0.06 to -0.13

Re: (1sciroccofahrer)

Hey there....I just saw you sent me email. <p>Specs are as follows (from Volvo Software- empty car...no driver in it) for the front:<br>Caster 3.35" n 1.0" Deviation L/R side: 1.0"<br>Camber 0" n 1.0" Dev. L/R side 1.0ss<br>Toe-in (over both wheels) Dev. L/R side 20' n 6' <p>The "n" in question here has " over it and the ss in question here looks like a double S, so don't really know what that means. Your mechanic probably will. <p>Rears: <br>Nominal camber angle is -.25" +/- 0.75"<br>Correct toe-in is 0.1" +/- 0.2" measured across both wheels...deviation from the axis of symmetry (thrust angle) must not exceed 0.25"<br>Toe-in ajustment on the eccentric screws is torqued at 90Nm (66.4 Ft lbs) <p>Just copied stuff so I don't know much as to what all this means. <br>I also found other information on the toe-in. Sent it to you as an attachment by email.<br>Hope this helps.<br>MIJ<p>Edit: Just noticed that Steve's numbers are quite a bit different. Where there's a descrepancy, I'd go with the lower numbers for tighter compliance, well at least as much is truly possible by the guy doing your alignment and his machine.
