Hi to everyone,

My 131 has problems with caster, left wheel marks 2.3 and right wheel 5.2, control arms, ball joints and sway bar bushings are new. I understand that putting some shims where control arm joint with sway bar is a form of change caster but I'm not sure if with time shims will ruin control arms bushings. What can I do to fix that?, Another thing I forgot to mention, the car pulls to the left.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

this is usually due to worn out upper rubber damper supports, I mean those:

A ride height imbalance does the same,  we found this on Baby T.

Hi to everyone,

Is fixed now TOAD, it was the upper rubber damper supports as 131DHOC said, after replacement the car runs better, still pulls to the left but only in bad road conditions.

Thanks for the comments.

you may also check the conditions of dampers, remember that 131 dampers act as control arms at the same time, being this a McPherson setup.
