Factory alignment settings
 
I've read several treads now about tracking and drifting issues on the WK2. I'm wondering if this is related at all to the factory alignment settings. Does anyone know what these are and what is adjustable?

I took mine in yesterday for an alignment and found the front and rear was substantially off. My car only has 8k on it and never been off road.

That's nice but what are the factory settings, and what is adjustable?

Air suspension or not?

Yes but I'd be surprised if there was a difference.

Thanks. Is it common to have different L and R camber settings? What would be the purpose?

I don't know. I do remember reading on here from someone that for the air suspension the alignment needs to be done with the Jeep at Aero Mode height.

I suspect that it is because it coincides with high speed, where alignment issues would be more noticeable.

WK2's are fully adjustable. Pretty much every one that I check needs some adjustment love.

The factory ranges that fljeepleo posted appear to me to be a huge range. Do you have a recommendation for the settings to aim for? Mine's a daily driver, mainly highway, 4WD functions are used mainly for snow while traveling to the mountains during the winter, and I drive about 20k miles/ year.

Re: Factory alignment settings
 
The ranges they set mine at were almost exactly in the middle of those numbers.
