The rear robotic tooling provides for an accurate means of adjusting the rear toe, without operator interface resulting in a solution to ergonomic issues caused by the high torque requirements. Many variations of designs are possible to accommodate many different suspension types. Various styles of robots can also be used as preferred. Specially designed gear-heads are provided to allow access to the cam adjuster, and control arm fasteners.  The end effecter of the robot will essentially contain the adjust gear head and secure gear as one package. A specially designed locator mechanism is also provided to hold the vehicle during the rear securing process.  This mechanism will positively locate to a detail on the vehicle, and remain engaged during the adjust secure process. It will counteract the force generated by the high torque required on the rear control arm fasteners.
