I installed my 2.5 blocks today after work, and found minor dogtracking after driving it home on the freeway.
The wheel is in between 12-1 o'clock, when going straight. So it is pretty minor.
Now, what I am thinking to shift it straight is to loosen one end of the u-bolts and torque the other end to try and scoot it that way. I'll do this left and right, but on opposing ends.
Any thoughts, and/or suggestions?
The blocks have a front arrow, so I ruled that out.
I didn't touch the center bolt, but it is slightly misaligned when looking at the right top leaf plate. I remember it shifting a little left, right back, front, as I torqued it.
Yesterday, when I did the job, I dropped it a hair to give me clearance for the blocks, didn't see the center pin on the leaf pack. I just felt it. How easy is it to shift that pin? I know the block's pin is cast solid.
yes I did one side at a time. the right side was 100% on when I slightly leaned the left side to just barley squeeze that new block. I did not torque it down all the way to spec though at that time (only snug), until both blocks were in. (maybe that killed me)
The left side looks nice and center by looking at it. The right side you can tell the wheel is very slightly toward the rear.
I'll go check some spring distances to confirm what the eye sees, and the slightly off steering.
