Is Camber even adjustable on 2010 Seinna FWD? SAI questions..

Asked by Aug 01, 2009 at 02:40 PM about the 2010 Toyota Sienna LE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

New Sienna had "wandering" issues as delivered.  Dealer did alignment, adjusted the toe, now the car drives fine.  Except, looking at the alignment printout from the dealer, the SAI is way off on one side  ~6deg instead of ~10. The right side is fine, in spec.  Of course the dealer said "this was normal".  I know the SAI is not directly adjustable, and the alignment book says SAI should be same on both sides.  Big question - with no indication of accident damage, how can the Caster & Camber be correct but the SAI be off by 4 degrees?

camber and toe should always be adjustable... caster varies from car to car. And for the last question ride height. if a car is lowered the shocks will shit at steeper angle, then when you adjust the cabme to correct it your making SAI angle a lot wider. Also can cause by wearing tires. cause the 3/32 can make a difference.

this might help you understand what im saying http://www.familycar.com/Alignment.htm. Where you see the SAI info. SAI is measured between the angle of the strut to true line. Imagining having that car lowered now. the bottom of the strut will angle more out so now you have steeper angle witch in turnes change the SAI.
