560SL Alignment Specs
Does anyone have MB published wheel alignment specs for a 1986 560SL. They are not on the CD or Chassis service manual and I get conflicting data from all other sources. I now have the car aligned within Firestone specs but it sucks and pulls left.

Specs I used are in ALLDATADIY. I am at work and will send when I get home this evening. I will also check my mantenance CD also. They are not all the same.

alignment spec from ALLDATADIY
for my 1988 560SL

NOTE Perform alignment measurements in "Ready to Drive" condition, (i.e., at normal road height with simulated passenger load).
Front Axle
Camber [1]

Wheels in straight ahead position -0°10' (+10', -20')Max difference between left and right 0°20'
Caster [1]

Wheels in straight ahead position 10°30' (+30', -30')Max difference between left and right 0°30'
Toe-In [1]

Wheels spread at front with 90-110 Nm 0°20' (+10', -10')
Track Difference [2]

Angle at 20°lock of wheel nearest curve -0°45' (+40', -40')[1] Tolerances for test only. Try for nominal value during adjustment.[2] Value indicated without toe-in.
Rear Axle

Measure distance in height from inner semi-trailing arm mount to lower edge of wheel bearing carrier coupling. Camber reading for measured height should be as follows:

Height Spec: 130 0°±30'125 0°15' ±30'120 0°30' ±30'115 0°45' ±30'110 1°±30'105 1°15' ±30'100 1°30' ±30'95 1°45' ±30'Toe Total (inch): 0°25' ±15'
