Sold me Rav4 because of certain future plans, now I am wondering what to do? Should I rent a car for a few days or buy a small cheap (reliable) run about that I can sell quickly. Not for daily driving but to go about the weekend shift and probably one or two trips. Heart says rent, but its going to be quite expensive.
After I did the tyre replacement on my Civic ES8, I did the wheel alignment on last weekend, at Kesbewa Chamila Wheel alignment which is somewhat popular in the area, and it was also recommended by one of my friends who got a similar car.
The problems I had was some front-inside wear on both, front right too much wear, (rear was OK) and bit vibration at 110Kmph which increases when I'm speeding. Once I had to overtake a retard who is going slow on the E01, but speeds when I try to overtake, and when it was 130Kmph shaking was unbearable.
After the alignment, still I find that I have some vibration after 110Kmph, but it doesn't seems to be get increased with the speed. So In this week, I stayed below with my safety bar which is 110Kmph, but once I noticed having more steering response at 120Kmph when going downhill in a certain occasion. (steering tend to turn more, and was not much hard to turn. It was like a EPS, where I got Hydraulic PS)
Planning to visit him soon eventhough he asked me to come after a 2500KMs, so wanted to get my facts straight before going there. According to what I read through on google, the King-pin angle cannot modified on normal vehicles, so it's the toe (which seems OK), camber(again looks OK, minor deviation from 0.00, or is it?) and the caster I need to change.
Can somebody comment? Thanks for the help!!!
