    Default Tracking/4 wheel alignment needed after new trak rod end/lowering 35mm

    I had a new trak rod end on passenger side front today, £45 fitted, that sound about right? anyways do you think i need tracking doing? The car isnt pulling to one side or anything. I also lowered the car on apex springs last year and never had it done so would i benefit from a full 4 wheel alignment? Cheers.

    You would be ok with just front wheel alignment after rod end change.

    maybe garage that fitted it did that anyway? Should be standard practise to re track vehicle after fitting steering components.

    but since you've change suspension it would be beneficial to get a a full geomatary check done

    £54 inc. at the place in Cas . I'd say worth getting the 4 wheel done. Might save you a couple of miles on tyres.

    The OP's in Leeds. What's he driving? It's about 10 miles down the M62. Obviously Huddersfield is way closer

    Is the full geometry check same as 4 wheel alignment or something else?
    they didnt do the tracking for £45 that was just parts and labour. There a few local places that want £50 for full laser alignment. Is it something a garage with a poor reputaition can mess up or is it all fairly simple?
