Wheel Alignment Specs for the 560SL

Does anyone have the wheel alignment specs for a 1986 560SL. They do not appear to be in the chassis manual.

This is a joke right. In the replacement of the drag link section it says to refer to section 40.320 but bot my CD and paper manuals only go up to 40.113

???

Doesn't the alignment machine you are using have specs? Mine all have had them. From memory 9-9.5 degrees of caster, -.25 to-.5 camber and 3mm +or- 1mm toe would work just fine. Leave a quarter less caster on the left and a quarter more camber. The rear isn't adjustable so even camber and a few mm toe in with a thrust angle less than .1 deg will have to do.

Thanks again Steve

The alignment machine I have is a digital inclenometer.

What I got for $8.00 from alignmentspecs.com

Caster 10.25 +/- .5
Camber -0.17 + 0.17 -0.33 (Yes I did pay $8.00 to get 3 numbers for camber) I assumed it meant get 0 +/- 0.17 and -.33 is for the rear
Toe 0.33 +/- 0.17 or 0.17" +/- 0.08"
