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)

Anyone??

My Teg cracked in the first 500 miles, got it TIG welded along with brackets to stop it happening again. Pretty easy fix but go to an exhaust specialist as they need stainless wire and decent kit otherwise it'll be a patch job that won't last.

As for the rear beam you can fit shims to a degree but depends how far off it is.

I am sure TDI do shims for changing the alignment at the rear. If you took it for a Hunter Alignment they will be able to tell you if it is out and by how much.

So it is possible to adjust one side and not effect the other then?

Wouldíve thought youíd effect both sides with any changes with it being a beam!?

Shims go between the hub and beam iirc so affects one side. I just don't think you get a huge range of alignment so depends how far off it is.

If you haven't considered a fast road setup - that'd address and find all issues at the rear for you as well as making the car behave so much better. Could be as simple as the wheels are damaged / not balanced as well.

Donít want to spend unnecessary money on it tbh as I want rid of the car!

Itíll get what it needs and nothing more

I thought frs was supposed to cause the tyres to wear funny though as it adds negative camber!?

Tegiwa 'quality' at it's best! [/sarcasm]. I gave up buying their knock off stuff years ago after a crappy clutch of theirs didn't work properly and their alloy radiator didn't fit my DC2 properly. Come to think of it, the engine torque mounts were poor quality too.

As said above, get the exhaust rewelded and braced.
