Default Help with Alignment Read Out

Need help reading this alignment. It looks like they just messed with my toes and left everything else the same including my back cambers. Did i get ripped off? I'm already bringing it back because the steering wheel is off center and the car is pulling slightly to the left.

i attached the print out but here is the reading


Before

Left front
Camber .4
Caster 3.0
Toe .09

Right Front
Camber -0.4
Caster 3.0
Toe .12

Front Total Toe .20
Steer Ahead -0.01

Left Rear
Camber -1.5
Toe .15

Right Rear
Camber -1.6
Toe .05

Rear Total Toe .20
Thrust Angel 0.05



After

Left front
Camber .4
Caster 3.0
Toe .01

Right Front
Camber -0.3
Caster 3.0
Toe .01

Front .02
Steer Ahead 0.00

Left Rear
Camber -1.5
Toe .07

Right Rear

What year is this? Most of the time they also give the "min/max" of the settings.

Default Thanks

Thanks for the help. Car is an 2006 accord. Min-max for front cambers is .8 to -.8. Front caster 4 to 2.5. And toe is -.8 to .8.

Back camber is -.5 to -1.5. Back toe is 0.0 to .16.

I asked the guy about my cambers that werent moved and he said that some are not adjustable especially in the back. Would this be true on an 06 accord?

Thanks for any help

A good alignment shop will solve this.....not good with the '06 but there are "aftermarket" shims that can be installed to correct this.....

Bottom line, if they can not get the car "within" spec then they should tell you why or give you options to get it "to spec"....and the "wheel being off-center"....well, that should answer how much of your business they get going forward, unless they "make it right".
