Wheel Alignment on '07 Tucson (4WD)

    I'm told by my mechanic that 3 of the 4 wheels on my 10-months-old '07, 4WD
    Tucson require alignment. He also says that, normally, only the toe-in is
    adjustable on Hyundais, but that there is a $90/wheel kit on the
    after-market that would allow camber adjustment as well.

    Does that sound reasonable/un-reasonable to anyone on this list? Thanks!

    Camber is easily adjusted by ovaling out the holes where the strut bolts go
    through.

    I recently had my '05 Tibutron's fron end aligned at Firestone, and
    they charged me $45.00 to grind the holes to a slot in order to adjust
    the camber.

    How did they determine the alignment angles were out of spec?

    How many miles do you have on the car? Alignment is covered 1 year/12
    miles, presuming you haven't done/hit anything that would affec
    alignment.

    Camber adjustments are only reasonable if the camber is out of spec, an
    only then if it's significantly out of spec. Minor camber issues won'
    cause significant tire wear/life issues, and their effect will be nea
    zero if tires are regularly rotated. The most you're likely to experienc
    is a small pull to one side or the other (wheel turns a small amount on it
    own if hands off wheel)
