Afternoon Knowledgeable folk,

I have a possible problem and question:

I have a Delica that appears to have an alignment issue. One of the rear wheels sits further back in the arch than the other (about 2cm).

It has had a small lift and an adjustable panhard rod installed fwiw.

From what i can tell this causes both rear wheels to point off to the left which I believe is called the thrust angle.

Is this an issue or just a quirk of some motors?

Thanks in advance

Additionally I have found that whilst most people say the panhard only affects lateral alignment, adjusting mine does have a small 5-10mm affect of the forward and backward movement.

However, when I do adjust it to draw the wheel forward by those small 5 to 10mm to even things out, it does it's primary job of recentre the axle to offcentre by about an inch so the passenger side wheel sits about inch further out of the arch.

Six of one....
