Textbook Problem

While performing a prealignment inspection: Technician A says that improper front-wheel bearing adjustment may affect wheel alignment angles. Technician B says that worn ball joints affect only the camber angle. 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 improper front-wheel bearing adjustment may affect wheel alignment angles.

    Technician B says that worn ball joint affect only the camber angle.

    A vehicle will move with less effort on road when the opposite wheels are running parallel to each other on a straight line path.

    Wheel alignment can be affected by the improper height of trim. If the tire pressure is not as mentioned in the manual, it will result in the misalignment of the vehicle. Wheel bearing adjustment provides proper angle between frame of the vehicle and the wheel. Improper wheel bearing adjustment alter the angle between the wheel and frame. This will cause misalignment of vehicle.

    Camber is most likely to cause vehicle to pull or drift. Caster is not measured on rear wheels as it affects the steering control and tracking of the front wheel. Camber is defined as the measure of centerline from the surface of the roads...
