    Default Tracking?

    Went to book in my car (Signum 2.0 T) for tracking and the local tyre fitters said they couldn't do it as they needed to strap down the car? Reckoned it was a main dealer job. Any thoughts?

    utter tosh!!!!

    what they mean is they don't know how to do a four wheel alignment.....

    there are no hidden tricks in doing it.. it's all straight forward if you know what you're at..

    m8 when i had my 52 plate Sri, just after they come out.. i was told by my local ATS that they couldn't to it as they need to weight the car down by 20Kg and they didn't have the weight... of course they are talking ****... just find a tire place that has a 4 wheels alignment... they should be able to do it no probs... the rear was alway out on mine... it went through the first set of rear tires in 15000 miles cos it was out of line from the factory...

    Just a quickie, When tracking/4 wheel aligning a lowered car, what settings do you track it too?? Do you track it as per the normal factory settings for a regular SRi, or are there differences/allowances for it being lowered??
