    Default 4 wheel laser alignment

    The Tractor is pulling slightly to the left on a straight road. It's been lowered by 40mm so what settings do you guys go for when you go for an alignment?? Do you go for the settings as though the car isn't lowered or something completely different? Also how much should I be paying for a 4 wheel laser alignment? I read in a Jap perfomance mag about a car they were running and it was about £100. Does the engine need to be running when the alignment is being set?? If I've missed any other crucial questions could you please let me know.

    The engine MUST be running if it as power steering (which the Vectra C does)
    The difference between the front wheels should be zero
    Personally I always observe the tracking as they carry it out, and decide whether it is worth adjusting

    I use National Tyres Kirkintilloch, at £22 (£11 discounted) for check and adjust, FOC for a check only
    Always try to find equipment that is under 3 years old

    A full chassis calibration and alignment would probably cost about £80, main dealers only as far as I am aware

    Will the settings need to be different as it is lowered?

    Spoons - would you mind if I used your VXRD logo on a number plate that I hope to get made up??
