Sort of a weird question. How do you adjust rear Toe in and Toe out?
I had my Tc3 on the Hudy Set up board. The left side rear is off compared to the right side,by at least 2deg.

How does a person fix this problem?

When you put the rear toe in block on, you need to make sure to put each hinge-pin in at the same time. Otherwise you will ruin the piece, the problem is it is made out of very cheap material. I suggest you buy a new part and put it on carefully.

Well if you put one hinge pin first, then put the other one in, you are bending the plastic so it causes unequal toe in. The best way I can explain it is to carefuly line the piece up with both hinge pins, and push it a little bit so heach hinge pin is seated slightly, then apply even pressure to each side so slide the pice on .

Good luck,
Josh

Yodace,

How old is your TC3? There was problem with one of the rear carriers in early production. The complaint from people was that one side had more toe than the other. Associated had to re-tool the mold for that part. I know that this was discovered early in the TC3's production, so if your car was purchased rather recently, that wouldn't be the problem; on the other hand, if you bought it used, or don't know how old the car is, you might want to try buying new rear carriers.

if you install a new rear hinge pin mount make sure you dont stretch the part over the other hinge pin that can cause unequal toe like speedo said.

Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

THIS IS THE ORIGINAL TC3 THREAD.

I don't know why guys keep opening others. It's so much more practical to have all TC3 related contributions in this thread.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.
