Default TC6.2 Rear tracking issues

I have a TC 6.2 with rear tracking issues. No matter what you do it does not track straight at any speed. I have changed everything. The problem is coming from the rear of the car. Any ideas?

This can be caused by a bad bearing, basically acting like a brake on one of your wheels. Could be front or rear.

You could have different rear hubs (like one a 0 and one 1 degree). Bad bearing somewhere , a diff half could be hanging up, rear toe in at different L/R, Different Hinge pin inserts L/R , bent hinge pin or shocks working differently.

A rusty rear CVD drive shaft at one side may affect the car running in straight line, it may cause vibration, try to take the CVD out and check whether it is free to move for all direction.

The 6.2 has those inserts in the hinge pin holders, make sure they have the same # of dots and same orientation or the rear toe will be different. I've seen this be the case 90% of the time. They must match on both sides and their position, a setup station would confirm correctness if available.
