    Peugeot wheel alignment specs

    I first posted a version of the following in response to a discussion on the "performance upgrades" board, but I think it will probably be more useful here...

    I think there would be value in having the recommended wheel alignment settings for all Peugeots available on line. Is there a site out there with this info on it? If not, does anyone have a set of specs that could be used to create one?

    If not, maybe we could pool any info that we have ourselves? Here are some settings for the 404, 504 and 505.

    My old genuine Peugeot 404 workshop manual, for example, provides a figure of 2mm +- 1mm for toe in on the 404 and indicates that one turn of the ball head produces 3mm toe adjustment.

    The Autobooks 504 manual specifies 3mm =- 1 mm and indicates that one turn of the track rod gives a change of 4.5mm at the wheel rim (only one track rod is adjustable on vehicles without power steering made prior to 1979/80) castor should equal 2degrees 40' +-30' , camber 0 degrees 38' +- 30' , and swivel pin inclination 8degrees 54' +-30' (apart from toe in these aren't readily adjustable, without component replacement on the 504)

    The figures mentioned above are presumably for the saloon. I don't know whether they vary for the wagon.

    For the 505 the Haynes manual offers the following:
    Toe-in:
    Saloon models 3.0 +- 1.0 mm
    Estate (except GTI) 3.5 +- 1.0 mm
    Estate (GTI) 2.0 +- 1.0 mm

    Camber:
    Saloon models -045' +- 30'
    Estate (except GTI) -030' +- 30'
    Estate (GTI) -055' +- 30'

    Castor:

    Saloon models 240' +- 30'
    Estate models 2 +- 30'

    Steering axis inclination:
    Saloon models 915' +- 30'
    Estate (except GTI) 9 +- 30'
    Estate (GTI) 925' +- 30'

    Rear wheel alignment (Saloon):
    toe in 3.0+- 1mm
    Camber -1 +-30'


    vehicles manufactured after 1989 may be different

    Again , only toe is adjustable. The other settings are dependent on suspension part and body integrity.

    Anyone have settings for other vehicles to add?

    Cheers

    This is undetailed info, soon to be updated... the aligment settings on my GTi6 are:

    Front
    Camber: in between 0 and -ve 0.5 degrees
    Castor: unsure of at this stage
    Toe: in between 2mm and 1mm of toe in.

    Rear
    Camber: -ve 1.5 degrees (no adjustment range)
    Toe: 2mm toe out (no adjustment range)

    I'll take it to another place shortly to double check.

    Here are the specs from a Beissbarth alignment I had done on my GTI6 today. They said these specs apply to all 2.0 petrol and 1.9 turbo-diesel 306s:

    REAR:
    Camber -120' +/- 015'
    Toe +020' +/- 008'

    FRONT:
    Castor + 320' +/- 030'
    Kingpin inclination +1100' +/- 030'
    Camber + 000' +/- 030'
    Toe + 010' +/- 005'


    Cheers

    I'm definately going to another wheel alignment place now...

    -1.4 and -1.6 camber on the rear, -0.5 and -0.4 camber on the front and 1mm total toe in on the front makes me think they might have bodged the figures - I hope not, bar the toe in it's all good!
