Hi,

I have a 1998 Grand Caravan ES with 3.8L engine. I recently had new tires installed along with a wheel alignment. The car drifts/pulls the the right. These are the results from the alignment report, including the spec range it reported (the * indicated on the report out of spec):

Front
Caster - no readings, just spec range 0.4 to 2.4
Camber Left - Initial -0.5* Final -0.6* Spec Range = -0.3 to +0.6
Camber Right - Initial -0.4* Final -0.5*
Toe Left - Initial -1.00* Final +0.10 Spec Range = -0.05 to +0.15
Toe Right - Initial +1.70* Final +0.55*
Toe Total - Initial +0.70* Final +0.65* Spec Range = -0.10 to +0.30

Rear
Camber Left - Initial -0.3* Final -0.3* Spec Range = -0.3 to +0.3
Camber Right - Initial -0.4* Final -0.4*
Toe Left - Initial 0.00 Final 0.00 Spec Range = -0.20 to +0.20
Toe Right - Initial 0.10 Final 0.10
Toe Total - Initial 0.10 Final 0.10 Spec Range = -0.40 to +0.40
Thrust Angle - Initial -0.1 Final -0.1 No Spec Range

Before the new tires and alignment, the car ran reasonably straight.

Could the right pull be caused by the fact that the toe is positive for both wheels? Was OK beforehand because left was negative and right was positive causing it to somwhat balance out?

Even though the camber is off, the difference between left and right is minimal.

I am taking the car back this afternoon, but I want to understand the issue.

Also, is it worth adjusting the camber? (The aftermarket struts have a camber adjustment.)

Thanks,
Adam
