    Default Alignment tyre wear..

    As a follow on from this thread i had my car 4 wheel aligned to day and was somewhat surprised at how bad it was out of sync..see pic.




    This was by all accounts quite a lot out of sync,but hopefully now its ok.

    This Alignment was done by ETS Derby so well pleased.

    It's not that bad, I've seen worse, only the front toe is out and has been adjusted

    My rear camber is out! can they do this ?, the tamworth vx dealer can't!!!!!!, No supprise!, if anyone knows a place any nearer id be happy to hear of it, its 'only' my os rear wheel 'for sure' everything else is 100% spot on!, i knocked the camber out by 'doh' undoing the wrong bolt the first time i replaced a spring!, 12 months on the tyre is wearing a Lot on the inside. local ATS cant do it either.

    Vehicle : Vectra C

    Trim : SRI With a few added extras

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 120

    Year : 06

    I had the same job done on my vectra b, they dial in your car into the computer and it shows what has to be done to reset the suspension geometry back to "standard".

    it was like driving a different car when I took it away, money well spent!

    Why can't the VX dealership? [They may not have the equipment to do so, but would need it if replacing rear suspension]
    As above, find the list for local agents with Hunters Equipment then visit the nearest and see if they can adjust if it is required
