    Default Anyone work at ATS (alignment question)?

    I had the full alignment check done a few weeks ago at the ATS in Blackpool with the new system (with the screen in reception so you can see it all) and the rear was spot on, all arrows were almost smack in the middle of the tolerance. I wasn't satisfied (explained below) so nipped to the local ATS this morning (in Leyland) and they checked it and everything was way out, both back wheels had far too much toe-out, too much camber etc.. basically all bar one front wheel was out of tolerance.

    I know there is something a-miss with the rear of my car, as the tyres I have just removed were very unevenly worn (the inside blocks were majorly stepped - two different brands too - not bridgestone) on the inside, to the point where it was making a right din. I have had all suspension components checked (all ok), and its had recent Bilstein B4's fitted too so I am keen to believe the last alignment check.

    The thing is, I know they have to select the car from a list, but am not sure which the recent check chosen, do you know what it should be for a SRi Vectra, should it be the 'Sport' one, or is there not that much difference between the standard and sport settings?

    The sport one has a bit more of a negative camber at the rear I believe.

    I'm same with mine dan, had it done early this year on the hunter system and got an all green print out but the camber still looks a little out, especially parked up next to your old one and its an easy comparison too as same springs and wheels...

    Think when I go back next I'm just going to tell them to forget the green and set it the far side of the tolerances towards the vertical wheel side...

    Oh and it's def out and not just a visual thing, I get no rubbing with my 25mm spacers on the rear, Hairy31 had to drop down to 22's due to these catching...

    If its an SRI they should set it to the sports figures.

    What I'm thinking is if its only the camber that's different, its probably worth going with the standard settings and losing some camber and be a bit easier on the tyres.....

    I reckon I will go with the sports setting, but will ask them to adjust the camber to edge of the tolerance to give minimal camber.
