Large pulling to the left

Postby nesty » 19 Jul 2017, 19:25

I had my T25 raised up recently, as it was too low.
Drives better and a more comfy ride. However, the pulling to he left as got a lot worse. I know the road often cambers in towards edge on some country roads, but it doing down motorway as well.

I haven't had the tracking done for a while now. I assume it's that?

It is the wheel camber adjustment that affects pulling. Tracking doesn't normally make it pull, the steering self centres and just wears the tyres unless one wheel has less grip than the other then it will pull to side with more grip.

ok thanks. Is camber adjustment part of the usual tracking adjustment? IE what tyre shops offer.
It's like if I let go of the wheel it starts wandering to the left
I'm lowered 40mm now. Also, have traction batteries behind the passenger seat, so some weight on that side. Though on the off side there is me driving & cabinets behind me so the weight must be more then distributed ok, which why I am thinking it's the tracking?
