Thanks, Allen.  I have no problem with my car.  I was trying to answer a
question posed to me by someone else.  He wanted to know how to adjust camber
on a TR4.  What I found is that it cannot be done simply.  The manuals tell
how to measure camber, not adjust it.  My conclusion is that camber is OK
unless some damage has been done to the suspension or, as you suggest, the
frame.  If that is the case then the action you recommend is appropriate.
Thanks again.
