P32 rear wheel alingment

hello all

is rear toe in adjustable on a P32 chassi?

i had a 4 wheel alignment done and it seems one rear is toed in and the other is toed out. doesn't this contribute to "tail wag" ?
they adjusted the rear "tracking" with the front.
wandering got worse after the alignment. requires constant steering adjustment on straight roads. wasn't that bad before.
can't find anything here about rear alignment.
Thanks

If the toe ( in / out ) was equal. This is an indication that the differential , ( the rear end) is not 100% true to the frame, and so not tracking behind the front wheels. This could be a major problem to correct, requiring frame work or relocating the differential on the springs in the case of rear leaf spring suspension.
Not really a contributor to tail wag as much as dog tracking.
Dog tracking is best viewed when following behind, the coach is not true in it's lane of travel. At it's worst you can see one side of the coach and maybe not be able to see the mirror on the other side.
If your alignment was to correct a handling problem , not for tire wear.
I'd be after the alignment shop, to re-set the front toe in, closer to it's pre-alignment setting, to help the wandering condition.
They didn't put the tire pressure up when they aligned the coach did they ?

the alignment was just because it hadn't been done for seven years.

according to the before and after print outs, they didn't change the front toe in , .13 each side.
tire pressures per the tire tables from corner wts.

Did the shop change the camber/caster?

The rear toe , is more an indicator that the wheelbase measurement is slightly off side to side. Rear alignment on a rear wheel drive , is a bend the diff housing , or replace it, deal that's why you won't find any info.
Sorry should have mentioned that in my first post.

By tracking adjust , did they shift the rear housing, and give an after measurement of the rear toe in ?
