I don't want to write a novel so I am gonna be quick. Since I bought my 2006 Pilot I did the alignment three times and all three times they messed it up and it never drove straight. About two weeks ago I brought my car for the alignment check in a "high quality place" and they told me that I need to replace the toe arms. I went on eBay and I am confused which one is which. Toe and camber arms look exactly the same and even on some products it says "camber toe arms" which confuses me even more. I have heard that camber cannot be adjusted so I want to buy some adjustable arms but I do not see the difference between them. Do they look similar or they are exactly the same? I am out of state now, so I cannot take off the wheel and look, but I when I come back I want to already have it.

P.S. when I type in camber arms it shows a little more expensive ones so if they are the same that will save me some money

The Pilot stock rear suspension has non adjustable control arms. There are adjustable upper rear control arms available on Rock Auto. They are threaded, with a locknut, similar to outer tie rod ends in design. This will allow your alignment shop to bring the rear wheel camber back into spec.

Yes, but is there a difference between them?

I just read your post again, and I'm not sure if you are talking about front or rear?

Ok, if you haven't looked on Rock Auto, please do so. They show both standard and adjustable control arms with clear photos and specs.

Here you go. Add filter words "upper", "rear" and "adjustable" for even more precise results.

My rear toe is out, so I assume those adjustable arms won't help with that since they're only for camber adjustment, which is fine on mine. How do we fix the toe on the rear?

On each rear lower arm there are adjusting bolts for toe adjustment

Rear toe-in:
2WD: 2±2 mm (O.O8±0.08 in.) 4WD: 0±2 mm (0±0.08 in.)

Just got an email alert from our isthmus-dwelling friends over at Rockauto that they're having one of their wholesaler closeout parts sale for 2006s. Not quite as many good finds as a decent garage sale, but you may find something too good to pass up. I did. :D

Wholesaler Closeout Parts : 2006 HONDA PILOT 3.5L V6


They even have what you may be looking for.



And don't forget to enter your Piloteers discount code on top of that. :)
