Alignment on a Corolla

This afternoon I did an alignment on a '06 Toyota Corolla. First, I checked tire pressure before I drove it on the alignment rack. Then I placed the sensors on every wheel. Noticed on the computer the rear needs to be aligned first, after that the front. Note: Always align the rear first.

I found out the computer(shows illustrations) the rear toe can only be adjusted with aftermarket shims and there is no adjustments for camber. The rear toe was only a degree off. If it was way off then that is when you need shims. So I just aligned the front toe. It took only a couple minutes.

Then I test drove it. The car was driving straight. Great!! Got paid for 1.7 hours and it took less than 30 minutes. I love this job!!
