The right front is at 7.3 and the left is at 7.6. Given that the acceptable range is 7.5 to 8.5 degrees, I'm surprised its causing the pull to the right. Control arms, etc. appear to be okay and thrust bushings were recently replaced. Any other thoughts out there?

Thanks again, Chris

Just sent a recently purchased '87 535i for an alignment fix and was told the caster was off on the right side. They suggested having a frame straightener force a correction. This seems like the wrong thing to do as the car has never been wrecked...probably pothole related. Anyone have experience fixing a caster problem?

Thanks, Chris
