    Driving Stability & Smoothness

    Hello Forumgoers. In the past couple of months I've experienced some driveability concerns with my 2012 sport, and am looking for suggestions on what to inspect.

    Earlier this year I noticed that the outside tread of my front driver's side tire was severely worn. As I noticed that the car does pull to the right I concluded that it was an alignment issue, no doubt. So I rotated the rear wheels to the front and put new tires on the rear wheels. I got an alignment:

    And yet, the car still pulls to the right, and the steering feels very "live" or twitchy. Now, I've gone and checked for obvious play in the linkages in the front suspension by putting the car up on jackstands and supporting the control arms with a hydraulic jack, but none of the ball joints seemed loose in their sockets. I've also read up on the forum posts about the shims for the rear suspension, however I've never noticed this problem before in all the years of driving this car and also the alignment printout shows the rears to be in spec. The caster for the front left does seem way off, but seeing as this is not supposed to be adjustable I'm not sure how it could either be that far off or be fixed (and I'm not sure if it would cause the symptoms I'm experiencing).

    For what it's worth, I've been the only owner and all of the suspension equipment is original. 106000 miles on it.

    Welcome to the forum. Id take it back to the alignment shop. Have them look at it again. Tell them it pulling to the right. The alignment shop will be the experts.

    If your rear tires are wearing uneven. That where the shims come to play.

    Front total toe should be 0.00 degrees. Not “close enough” unless you paid $35 for an alignment. Additionally, what are your tire pressures set to? Have them check back joints and wheel bearings.

    Something is bent in the drivers side front.

    The new "twitchy" steering is more noticeable due to new tires, possibly too high tire pressures, and the amount of rear toe your car is running.

    You need to check your tire pressures, and look into getting rear shims for the twist beam to zero out the rear toe.

    Here is a thread on standard adjustments. Full specs are available on the Fiat500USA link in comment #4.

    As in that article, all 4 wheels are adjustable thru the use of "aftermarket" shims and adjusters. This is one set that RoadRace came out with to adjust front caster and Moog sells an offset bolt. (I have not needed either on my Fiat, so don't know how well they work, but I had to use similar on my Ranger, which was out-of-spec from the factory.)

    If this were my car, I'd probably start by having it checked out by an alignment shop specializing in problems. All shops can fix a car when everything is perfect, but fewer shops are experts at correcting problems. If there is no suspension damage, I'd shoot for matching caster on both sides, towards the max caster. Fixing the specs on your driver's side will probably help considerably.

    Starting with the basics, pulling can be due to road surface, tire condition, tire construction, mismatched tires, uneven tire wear and incorrect air pressure. Adding 5 lbs of pressure to the front tires can make the car feel a bit twitchier. Mods and wear (lowering springs or worn/bent parts) can cause problems. Regular tire rotation can help. The fronts go straight back, the rears cross-over to the other side to the front, and should be done every 3 to 5K miles to even tire wear. You might try moving your new tires up front or switching the fronts left-to-right to see if that helps, once the alignment is corrected.

    Just a FYI about the rear. If needed you can loosen the 6 bolts that hold the rear axle pivot mounts to the car body and move the whole assembly right or left as needed. I custom cut my rear shims out of one piece of steel and it is time consuming . On my last alignment after installing Uniballs this little trick saved me from milling a new set of shims. The car is a 13' Sport .
