    Many thanks andy

    Got a surprise for you then...

    Toe and camber are adjustable on both front and rear. The rear is adjusted first to get a 'centre line' through the car then the front is adjusted based on this. Hope your rear adjustment bolts haven't seized...

    Is the front adjusted via the lower strut mounting point to the hub? Will I need any special bolts or are they already fitted with cam type washers if needed. Or just elongated holes then very tight bolts for both front and rear. Cheers for the fast depots guys

    Is it pulling to the right when driving along or when you brake - just wondering if it could be a brake issue ie caliper

    I appreciate that this post is now 3 weeks old, but I thought I would share an experience - it might help someone else with similar issues in the future...

    I had 2x new front tyres fitted recently, after which my car pulled to the right. I swapped the front tyres around and it then pulled to the left - so I swapped them back again and (you guessed it) they pulled to the right again. I took the car back to the tyre fitters and they told me it was the tracking as tyres are never faulty - but I wasn't convinced for two reasons - firstly, the old Goodyear NCT tyres were worn equally across the tread when removed, and secondly, the steering wheel was perfectly central and the car never pulled prior to the new tyres being fitted. After lots of disagreeing with the tyre centre manager, he replaced the right tyre (reluctantly!) and it solved the problem straight away. It turned out to be a faulty tyre casing all along! The car has been perfectly fine since!! So the moral of the story is simple - Tyres CAN be faulty when new, and some tyre centre managers sing a good song but actual DON'T know their asses from their elbows!!
