Mmmm true... my bad.

Can't recall any sleeve there on any car thought.

That's the place for the turning switch and on that collar goes also the bearing. Never have seen any sleeve on any web pic either for that area :shruggy:

Well I have another project which has got me busy for several years now. Maybe approaching? Just God knows.

Get back with my ex gf

(Yes, I'm stick with her yet :-[ )



(10 years old pic... but she still looks  beautiful... a bit more "faty" thought LOL)

You are welcome.
I was impressed at how it started to make sense as I got deeper into it all. The direct relationship of caster and camber was something that I'd heard of but hadn't seen in front of me before.
Two separate cars with similar construction, similar parts and they got similar numbers.
I've read for years from guys that had trouble getting adequate caster and thought my red car was somehow rare or unusual since I've always been able to get good numbers with it. Now with the second Charger getting similar numbers, I wonder how other guys have had trouble.
A buddy texted me today...His '68 Dart has offset bushings but was aligned to 1 3/4 degrees positive caster and 1/4 degree negative camber. That car should have been able to do much better. The guy is going to bring his car over here on Monday and we will see what numbers we can get with some adjustments.

Take a closer look at that breakdown photo.  Where they say a "Sleeve" should be is NOT where the one you think is located.  :shruggy:

I know about that one and it is indeed in place.

Last post by hemi71x - Yesterday at 07:47:14 PM
I have these 10 total, Rallye Wheels, 14" x 5 1/2" width, big bolt pattern 4 1/2 inch, that i need to find good new homes for.

I will sell each wheel at $22.50.

Will not, cannot, have no desire, in trying to ship these wheels.
For local pick up, purchase, only, within driving distance to the Sacramento, California area.
Or i can bring some down to the De Anza College, car show, in a few weeks time, with a pre paid purchase.

Anybody interested, get in touch with me with a pm, here on this forum, and i will get right back with you, then both of us can further go on, from there.

Thank's a lot.
Jim V.

Good timing. I need to align mine after I set the ride height. I guess I need to go find some sheet metal and toe plates. Thanks for the write up!

-Starting on a pole barn build. 32x48x14.
-Swapping the engine in the 76 Gran Torino once the Charger is back on the road, which should be real soon.
-Once the garage is up I'll start my A-Team project, followed by the Delorean, KITT, and transforming the Ford in the Starsky and Hutch car. In no particular order.

Also building a 1/8 scale KITT, a 30+ inch Millennium Falcon, and some 3D printed stuff.

My main goal is to not die before I have at least half of my projects done!

  I'm going for my first brisket on my smoker for Father's Day. I'm really hoping I do it right.

I have dabbled in cooking but haven't strayed far from beef.
Landscaping? It can be rewarding to cultivate and shape the trees and grass. I've ran tractors and felt like it is doing bodywork on a much larger scale!

I'd like to restore my former's Dad 1975 W126 Mercedes 280S (which was actually trying, WHILE I was still in Venezuela), and HAVE to keep on mantenience/restore my actual driver 1998 Range Rover P38 2.5DSE.

But untill I don't have my Charger finished and with me in Spain, the P38 will be a low budget "restoring" job, and the Mercedes will have to wait.
