Okay so I have a 2003 Ford Taurus wagon and I took it to firestone for new tires and an alignment and I was told they couldn't align it properly because the control arm is bent? So I told my dad and he knows A LOT about cars (rebuilt a 1994 jeep wrangler and a Ford pickup from the frame up) and he said when ford built this car they made it so you can't adjust the back end to realign it? Is this true? Because as much as I trust my dad this sounds really far fetched. But if it is true, is there anything I can do about it or am I just SOL? Thanks!

The only adjustment from the factory for the rear suspension is Toe, the camber is non adjustable.

I would look into what is causing the issue. Unless they could tell the arm is bent, it could also be a bushing that's is worn out or springs.

When I had my 2000 wagon, I installed camber bolts on the rear control arms where they mount to the frame so the camber could be adjusted as well.
