OT Alignment Questions

My brother in law took his car to a local tire shop. It was pulling to the right. After he got it back it was pulling to the left. The shop told him that the manufactuer (95 Mitsubishi Mirage) did not post specs for camber or caster adjustments. He wants to take it to the dealership to get the alignment redone.

Is it possible that there are no camber or caster adjustment on his car? Is it worth it to take the car to the dealership?

more likely an issue with toe-in / toe-out

As Ronin stated it's most likely toe-in. Most modern imports have a fixed camber strut and can not be adjusted without taking it to a frame shop. A good way to tell if a fixed camber car has been in an accident is check for alignment issues and uneven tire wear.

The Toe-in was adjusted and then double checked. However the car was in an accident. Thanks for the answers.

Just take it to a frame and axel shop, they can fix it easily. Last time I had this done it was about $100 to have the chassis adjusted back to spec.
