    Default Second opinion on my alignment results .... few Questions

    So today i got my car on the ramps at a local centre that owed me a favour (so cost me nothing) for making me sit and wait 1 hour 30 minutes for them to then say they couldn't do the job.

    Firstly Here are my Results from the "alignment/Geometry" that they carried out.

    (sorry if did the image wrong)
    align.jpg

    So, They told me the rear was fine and that the signum ....... DOES NOT........ Have anything adjustable on the rear... Im pretty certain that's cow deposit. Though they then went on to say the rears are fine and would not need any adjustment. From the above image i can see that this is rubbish and they have tried to feed me some more bull deposits.

    This was not done on a hunter machine, Nor did I go via Alignmycar, Mainly because the only one in Sheffield that im aware of is at carclinic and they Dont ever answer there phone, So i would have to either drive down to Mansfield, Nottingham or north to Stockport area. I spoke to a few places and they are so varying in prices from £25.00 per adjustment to £30.00 + vat per adjustment.

    What do you guys think of the above image? The front seem fine to me. However im concerned to the rears?

    Does any know of a good 4 wheel alignment in Sheffield that can do the work at a reasonable price and not at day light robbery prices?

    I'm no expert, but I'm not aware of any adjustability on the rear wheels for toe-in/toe-out, just some limited adjustability for camber. I can't work out from your pic what it's showing though - is it camber at the rear or toe?

    Here is my alignment before and after results. As you can see the rear has been adjusted so Me thinks they don't know what they are talking about.
    My Signum has the sports suspension set up so it might not be applicable to your model. I have Eibach pro sport-line springs with the Signum design shocks.

    Was yours done on a hunter alignment setup?

    The image ive added is pretty poor detail, however from looking at it here with it been a tad larger my concern is with the rear wheels.

    The -2.02'/ -1.00' (both in red/Orange is the Rear Camber and then the one below that (reading -0.20 and + 2.50) is the Rear Toe.

    So starting at top on mine there is

    Front
    - Caster
    - Camber
    - Toe

    Rear
    - Camber
    - Toe

    Ive now got 2 answers one saying no adjustment one saying there is? Dont confuse me more please

    I'm sorry I cant tell you where in your area you can go. Hopefully someone from your region might Know and post up the answer for you.
    Yes it was done on the hunters machine and as you can see my right rear camber was out along with a couple of other bits. The after picture clearly shows it has been adjusted.

    Yup, thats great i was pretty certain they could be adjusted and as you say, proof is there in Black, white, green and red.

    If any one does know of some where localish to Sheffield (i dont mind a short drive for the best place! (say 50 miles ish) But it has to be the best place!
