Question To All Alignment Experts

Hi guys,

I am looking at this 500SL. In the dealership service record it has a comment like this about this car,

"BOTH REAR TIE-ROD SEIZED, CANNOT ADJUST...
RIGHT FRONT CAMBER AND CASTER AT MAX...'


What does all this mean and is this car worth buying?

Thanks

The toe adjustment on the rear of this vehicle if I remember correctly are essentric , dont know why they would be seized. The caster and camber problem in the front could be the lower control arm bushings bad. I would have this car looked at and have a pre-purchase inspection done if you are seriously considering buying it.

Question essentric ?

"essentric" is that eccentric - off of center - or a word I've never heard and don't yet know? Just wondering! Thanks!
