I have been finding it difficult to find a shop that can do an alignment on my 64 SDV. The alignment heads that attach to the rear wheels come too close or touch the body. I have been to 4 shops so far. Will be going to Duty Tire as Jason suggested but I wanted to see if anyone has had this experience or can shed any light.
Short history of the work that I have done is replace upper lower ball joints, stab links, and control arm bushings. The brakes have been totally redone-everything, and have been adjusted a number of times.
The car seems to ride straight maybe a slight wander to the right when steering wheel is let go. When the brakes are applied car pulls to the left, I guess for lack of a better description at a medium intensity. I have adjusted the brakes per manual a few times.
According to the shop manual the primary lining goes to the front and the secondary on the back. the primary is 11.52" long and the secondary is 12.98" long so the shorter one goes in front. I think you had it right the first time.
Beyond basic brake adjustments, there are 13 reasons listed in the Shop Manual for causes of car pulling to one side (see my post from yesterday). I would tick off all of them, especially any that you know have been changed since the noticeable pull to one side.
