Re: Barn doors opening... ...whilst driving!

If you have the door open and operate the handle does the rod come down and up the full distance ? Is the rod worn where it engages the plate? Either that or the handle mechanism is worn or loose. Does the handle drop as your driving along?

Re: Toe in

I have done the camber angle on the shims. I need to adjust the tie rods for the toe in angle.
