Alignement problem

Hi people, I recently got a problem with my 1997 Honda Prelude and I try to figure what can it be. It seems like my two rear wheels have not the same camber angle but it doesnt seem to affect the stability. What is the part involved in this problem thank you very much. And sorry I am new to automobile mechanic. Thank you in advance. Here are pitures

Re: Alignement problem

Could be anything from distribution of more weight on the right rear corner, bad strut, or bad balljoint.


Just bring it to an alignment shop to check the suspension over.

Re: Alignement problem

+1 -- it's very difficult to judge small alignment angles by eye. Just the ground not being exactly level could make a difference.

Re: Alignement problem

To be clear: it's not certain there's a problem at all. You need to get the alignment measured; eyeballing it isn't accurate. If there is a problem, the measurement will indicate what's involved.
