Textbook Problem

Technician A says that caster can be adjusted on nearly all front suspensions. Technician B says that toe can only be adjusted on front suspensions. 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 caster can be adjusted on nearly all front suspension.

    Technician B says that toe can only be adjusted on the front suspension.

    Caster is defined as the measure of tilting of steering wheel from the vertical axis in forward and backward direction. This is viewed from the side of the wheel. It is of two types:

    1. Positive caster.
    2. Negative caster.

    Caster adjustment is the first thing to do while aligning the vehicle. It can be done on front suspension. When the axis of steering wheel is forward to the axis of vertical axis, it is defined as positive caster. When the steering wheel axis is behind the vertical axis, it is defined as negative caster. Negative caster provides directional stability in cars...
