    Default Front offside coil spring

    Hi

    I have recently changed my front offside coil spring and was wondering if i should be worried about my tracking?

    Does anyone know of any cool simply way of checking it myself?

    Any info on things i should check for after new coil has been installed please advice.

    Ps only the front offside has been changed. Nearside still running on the old.

    Thanks

    Don't bother with the alignment until the other side is replaced
    Golden rule, always replace both parts across a car (steering, suspension, etc)

    Equally, if the existing tyres are below 4mm leave the alignment until the next tyre change
    The wear from 4mm to 1.6mm will show if the alignment is incorrect

    I had both front springs and shocks replaced earlier this month
    Last week had all the tyres replaced
    The alignment was checked and found to be almost perfect
    The outlet advised there was little point in any adjustment, off the ramp with no charge
