What's weird to me is I took in my Focus for a four wheel alignment at Sear's and the rear end came back as within tolerance (actualy it came back perfect) Is there any alignment machine that could get that wrong because components were bent? It's strange to me that the rear camber is so obviously bad as to be visualy evident, but the machine says it's fine. I was thinking that if the part was faulty, maybe the readings would be too, but if this particular failure reads on a rear alignment machine, maybe it's not?
What does an alignment machine base it's readings off of? How could it get a perfect reading for something so obviously fubared?
