    Default Hunter Alignment

    Hey all

    A few of you may have noticed from a couple of posts that my back end has been a bit "loose", and the rear tyres were almost bald on the inner edges. Put new banana arms and rear springs on, but the car still felt loose at the back, more so on smooth roads.

    Took the car for a full alignment on the Hunter machine this afternoon. Front and rear toe was out, and the camber on both rears was out. Not to mention the steering wheel was about 10 degrees off centre.

    I left an hour later, and £100 lighter But the car has been totally transformed. It drives straight, the steering wheel is straight, and the car feels solid too.

    A huge thank you to Revolution in Gateshead for their excellent service in getting this sorted

    I've attached the Hunter print-out...
