Front End Alignment

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know the complete specs for the front end alignment other than the 3 degrees camber and .98 inch toe in provided by the manual for a T-4 Trooper.

Although not a mechanic myself, I understand from a friend of mine, that more info is required to set up the front end correctly.

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

I don't agree with the setup you have posted. I do have quite a bit of knowledge around alignments/setup from doing it to my race cars.

What I would recommend as a starting point and adjust as needed:

+ 1 degree caster (note Positive caster)

- 1 degree camber (note Negative camber)

1/2 inch tow-IN

Reduce the caster to Zero if when you turn a corner it feels unstable.

Increase tow-in to 1 inch if steering feels twitchy/wonders when driven in a straight line.

Keep in mind this is not a car and will not drive like one. When driven in the dirt the setup is not as important and is very forgiving. The problem/most noticeable is when driven on hardtop/street.

When I return home, I will try to throw some gauges on my trooper to see where it is at from factory. There should not be any difference between a T2 & a T4.

Thanks. Although I haven't noticed any steering problems (always driven in desert), the front end just doesn't look quite right and we though we would check it, if we could get the right info. Iam going back to Arizona this week and we'll check it against the info provided by you.

Happy Trails

    • front axle for kubota rtv 900 2000 model

      Hello, I’m writing this because I desperately need some assistance with front axle for kubota rtv 900 2000 model. My stepfather told me his two front axles of his  kubota rtv broken separately yesterday and he couldn't distinguish which is for left or right. Are left and right front cv axles the same on a 2000 kubota rtv 900 4x4 ? And what's the cost of kubota rtv 900 axles ? I don't learn much about kubota rtv and hope someone tell me. Thank you.

    • Wanted: Trooper Axle Parts

      I am interested in any old trooper axle parts you may have lying around. Please let me know if your want to sell them.  Backstory: Hey everyone. Last trip out to moab I climbed a wall on poison spyder Mesa while 2 rzr xp1000's and three can am x3 xrc's watched me and didn't dare try. After doing it once I pulled around to show them it wasn't a fluke. One on the can am x3 xrc drivers just looked at me and said "that's steep". On the second try I spread the bell on the left rear axle. I made the climb but now the inner cage slips inside making a loud popping noise as twisting the boot. I mainly just need the inner bell but I am interested in anything you have.

    • 2009 Joyner trooper fueling problem

      Fuel pump runs but nothing is getting tô it. I tried putting a vacuum on the outlet hose of pump and it wouldn't pull anything. This machine sat for a year and a half unused. Is there a way to prime the lines?  What could be the cause of the fuel not getting tô the pump?
