Car lovers!! your feedback required..

i own a waja(A) the car is about 2 years old.Recently the car tugs to the rigth whenever i drive.This happens at practically all speeds.Since then i have done balancing & allignment 3 times,but the problem still persists.... :cry_smile: .. the steering wheel is also slanted to the rigth slightly.. im using R17/45/205 wheels..

Opinions needed on this.. ;)

looks like the steering was not straightened while align. was done..

Better go to a better tyre shop for alignment...

Is ur tyres new ? If use all 2nd hand tyres or if u rotate ur tyres which oledy
makan sebelah/bengkak,uneven...it will sway left of right....even if alignment is ok

ok 1st things first...

check tyre condition. if botak on the outer side of either front tyres, try rotate front to rear or change completely new.

2ndly, do aligntment. check also camber angle and 'toe-in/toe-out on turns'. tighten all undercarried bolts and nuts.

it problem still persist, sumthing is very wrong with ur car.

Replies..

Waja comes stock with 15" rims.. i upgraded to 17 with low profile tires to accomodate proper end-to-end turning. However the left front arm has been replaced and i have also installed a lug damper.Actually the problem started after i sent the car to a different shop for alignmnet n balancing it was working perfectly with the 17" rims b4 that.The front left tire seems to have worn out on the outer part.Which adds to the confusion.. since my camber is set to negative.. :)

kelvio,
The way I drive, it's a waste of money doing balancing and alignment. hahaha besides, my car has been damaged from a minor accident sometime in... erm... june, I think. It's not fixed yet. Waiting for bonus to fix a lot of stuff up in my car. hehe

Need ur comment guys..

1) During wheel alignment, besides checking toe in-out adjustment , does it include camber adjustments ? Or camber adjustment have to pay another fee ?

2) After doing wheel rotation (front to back, vise versa) , is it a must to do on-wheel balancing after that? Coz my car has a spacer at the front wheels coz using diff pcd rims .. So i was told that everytime i take out the wheels, the balancing sure lari punya... True/False?
Cause after doing wheel rotation, i tested my car later after that up to 160kmh and it was still stable and nice. no vibrations..



- Coz i'm just god damn sick of this certain famous tyre shop at taman megah that always try to cheat my money or try to bluff me somehow or another everytime i go there, they think we dunno about cars n stuffs ... sohai.

So plz advise sifos.. tnx ..

wheel balancing no need to do 1,unless u feel got vibration or u change new tyre,or take the tyre out from the rim
i was a victim once,they say do balancing,then i do since i dunno any thing,
but after got to know new mech,they say no need to do,unless if feel got vibration


the camber i think if u add something(forgot whats that liau) need to pay extra,but after that, adjustment only u no need to pay extra edi
i think

Yeah, the adjustable camber kit right? i bought that already last time , so means adjusting it no need to pay extra?

I tot have to do alignment only they adjust everything for u including the cambers ..?
