I just completed a front-end rebuild on my 79 Z-28 including a set of Carrera bolt-in coil-overs (excellent parts by the way), which lowered the front end 1". Anyway, when I took it to the shop to have it aligned, they told me that the could not get the cross caster back into spec (it was in spec before they aligned it). The car now pulls to the right, even worse than before the alignment. My question is, what exactly is cross caster, and what could possibly keep the shop from getting it into spec? Was it something that I did in the rebuild? Did the shop screw up?

Thank you for your time,
James

Cross Caster is the difference in caster from side to side ... one side can be in specs at the upper end of the scale/limits and the other side can be in spec at the lower side of the scale/limits...but....there would be too much difference from side to side or too much cross caster...(ideally should match from side to side)

Since you have a pulling condition, are You sure that they didn't say cross "camber"???

Don't have an answer for why they could not correct it....I'd shop around for another alignment shop....one where You can talk to the person that does the alignments and explain Your situation to them...
