CASTER SHIMS?!

Whats up guys i have a problem, i went to the alignment shop couple weeks ago cause my steering wheel was shaking and pulling, and the guy told me i needed some caster shims cause my caster was out of whack. Now iv been looking like crazy and cant find them not even my local auto parts know what im talking about. So does anyone where i can find this???

Re: CASTER SHIMS?!

there is no caster shims.to adjust the caster you have to remove or add 12mm.washers to set the caster.

Re: CASTER SHIMS?!

Contact your local honda dealer or invest in a traction bar system.

A traction bar system replaces the stock caster arms with very adjustable ones.

Re: CASTER SHIMS?!

@OP Just a heads up, you might want to check your ball joints too. Alignment shops will miss them, they fit the symptoms you listed (at least the lower ball joint,) and if an LBJ fails it will f*** up your day and destroy your halfshaft (this is the voice of RECENT experience, I just replaced my LBJ and axle on the left, NOT fun.)

@HardKnoxbb2: do you have traction bars and do you like them/recommend them?

I do alignments for a years,and the only Honda with bad suspension was my old prelude.
