Hi.
Can someone please post up the oem factory specs for the correct wheel alignment for my 55 please.
I had a wheel alignment done on the Hunter machine but my steering wheel is slightly offset.
When driving in a straight line I need to keep to a couple of degrees to the right!
I have the results of my alignment so if someone could post the oem ones I can compare these.

Thanks.

Search feature (⚲) is your friend: http://www.slkworld.com/153176-post41.html

There is also a scanned pdf document on the above link (at the bottom of the post).

IIRC, the steering wheel being off-center with the vehicle driving straight may have to do with the clock-spring (misalignment) located in the center/core of steering wheel (there is thread on this also). Perhaps the wheel alignment was off initially and the misaligned steering wheel compensated for this. Now that wheel alignment is within spec, the steering wheel misalignment comes to light. (Just a speculation on my part).

Thanks Eddy
I went back to the shop today and they said they would have to do another 4 wheel alignment to center the steering wheel.
Getting it done on Monday.

Just back from the shop.
The guy had to re-do the 4 wheels and adjusted the front (Toe) on both sides.
