Tracking after curbing rear wheel

Hi,

I think I have knocked off the tracking on my GT after catching a rear wheel on a curb pulling out of a filling station. In the past I have had the rear trailing arms replaced (light aluminium) so I'm not sure if I am likely to have damaged these? I have 17" wheels, and the ones on the back are already a bit buckled... suspension crashes in a pretty major way when I hit potholes.

Is a four wheel tracking likely to sort the problem, or should I bring it to a dealer? The suspension has not been trouble free - new front ARB, front upper wish bones, droplinks, rear trailing arms, rear bushings at under 20k miles.

Thanks!

Re: Tracking after curbing rear wheel

you cant adjust the rear tracking, so if the tracking is off it means you have bent something.

The cam bolt on inner of the front bottom arm adjusts tracking, toe in. Not camber. It slightlly shortens or lengthens the front arm.
