Fn2 rear alignment issue + cracked TEGIWA exhaust
Got a couple of issues that need addressing 1st one being that the alignment is out on the rear (osr tyre is worn smooth on the inner edge), nsr appears fine but my question is - can this be fixed?
I suspect itís something causing too much negative camber on the osr wheel, but with the fn2 having a torsion beam rear axle, surely thereís little to nothing you can do to address one side without impacting the other (seeing as there linked), and thatís if anything can be done at all!?
Any of you know if the rear alignment can be adjusted to compensate this?? To me - it smacks of something being bent (as only one side is out!)
Donít really want to fork out for new rear tyres if poor alignment (that canít be addressed) is just going to kill one prematurely!!
2ndly my TEG exhaust has cracked quite badly around the weld that joins the centre section, pretty sure Iíve heard of these systems suffering this issue before, is it a relatively easy fix for someone with the right gear?? It looks like the TEG systems use low grade stainless and mild steel flanges and that means joining dissimilar metals which I know can lead to cracks in welds etc, but this system has been on a while and itís failed where the weld bead meets the main pipe run and not where itís welded to the flange which is obviously much thicker steel!
Looking at some of the other welds though, it does look like thereís the possibility of failing welds on some of the other joints as they kinda look like they might be going too, Iím reluctant to disturb them though incase they do fail completely if I start knocking n tapping at them (welds look corroded)
