    My mini summit is sidetracking?

    I thought that I turned the steering trim knob and that's why my summit was sidetracking. Well I noticed the right rear tire is pointed in slightly so the truck won't make a straight path. I replaced a drive shaft on that wheel and adjusted the shocks a bit and that's when I noticed it sidetracking. Is there some way to adjust it back?

    Pillow balls.

    There is supposed to be some toe in back there... keep that in mind!
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    The best way to keep both tires in balance is to do the following:

    1) Take both rear tires off
    2) Take the two pillow balls out of the right and the two pillow balls out of the left
    3) Now screw all 4 pillow balls back in just to the point where you can no longer see the threads. No more, no less. This will make all 4 the same so be precise.
    4) Now at this point screw both the TOP and BOTTOM balls in 4 1/2 turns. This should set them back to stock settings. If they bottom out before the 4 1/2 turns just do 3 1/2 turns. This will ensure that both sides are identical. If you do something to one side the other side needs to be done the exact same.
