Don't think anyone has posted that info yet. However, early last year several people confirmed that wheel alignment garages did not have specs yet. Had to go to dealer for alignment. Haven't' heard anything else lately.

Notes:
* For reference only. These are nonadjustable angles.
** TOTAL TOE is the sum of both the left and right wheel toe settings. TOTAL TOE should be equally split between each wheel on the same axle to ensure the steering wheel is centered after setting toe.
Positive toe (+) is toe-in and negative toe (−) is Toe-out.

I'm taking my KL into an independent shop for an alignment tomorrow as it has a slight drift to the right (ever since the dealer replaced the right strut and didn't do an alignment).

I looked over the specs that Desoto helpfully posted and had one question: My Jeep is a Limited with ADII, so it basically has the Trailhawk suspension. I thought there might be a separate set of specs for ADII as the Jeep has the suspension rise of a Trailhawk but wider tires.

It probably makes no difference in alignment as the only thing adjustable is the toe and that's the same no matter what the model. There are slight differences in the non-adjustable camber. Thoughts?

Another question: Is the rear toe and camber adjustable? It would seem so from the specs (no *) but that surprised me. Shims, maybe?

I had the alignment done today. The right front and the left rear both had incorrect toe. The Jeep seems to track straighter now.

To answer my question as to whether the rear toe and camber are adjustable; the tech said that they are. He said that there are adjustment cams that are rotated to make the adjustments. However, on the front, the only adjustment is on toe, unless you want to loosen the bolts on the front crossmember and move it around. A kind of scary proposition.

Yep he is spot on. Usually if it is pulling to one side ot will be the rear toe or thrust angle that is out.

An update on my alignment. Though it was better, I still had a slight drift to the right. I did a tire rotation (I rotate at 10K miles and it was due) and rotated them in an X pattern, which I usually don't do with radials. But my right front had the most wear and my left rear the least, so I switched them. the Jeep goes completely straight now so part of the problem was the tires.
