Textbook Problem

Technician A says that the presence of a thrust angle can cause poor directional stability on ice, snow, or a wet pavement. Technician B says that it can also increase tire wear because the front wheels fight the rear ones for steering control. Who is correct?

  1. Technician A only

  • Technician B only
  • Both A and B
  • Neither A nor B
  • To determine

    The technician with correct approach.

    Explanation

    Given information:

    Technician A says that the presence of a thrust angle can cause poor directional stability on ice, snow, or a wet pavement.

    Technician B says that it can also increase tire wear because the front wheels fight the rear ones for steering control.

    Thrust angle is defined as the angle difference between the rear toe and geometric centerline. When the steering wheel is in straight-ahead position, the rear tires track behind the front tires. In any alignment, the main consideration is to ensure a vehicle is moving straight down the road.

    It means when the rear toe of vehicle is parallel to the geometric centerline of the vehicle, the vehicle is moving in a straight-ahead position...
