    Default Post lowering allignment

    Thought this maybe of interest to anyone lowering/lowered their car.
    After having my SRi lowered 30mm on wednesday i thought i`d have a 4 wheel allignment done to make sure the cambers were still ok plus i had a feeling the tracking was out anyway.So here are the results.....



    Tracking was a little out but everything else ok = Happy Bunny

    P.s Also had new cruise switch under warranty this morning

    good advice penfold as its vital to maintain the track of the car so yer tyresdont wear out aswell as ball joints,drop liks etc although there seems to be a diffo in read out from side to side etc but im assuming cos its green then everything is within acceptible limits

    Apparently where the camber`s concerned one side is supposed to be near enough double what other other side is , if i`ve explained that right

    P.S I think the equipment was the reecommended hunter stuff

    How much did they charge if you don't mind me asking? Just trying to gauge how much it's gonna cost me to use one of these hunter systems.

    Just out of curiosity when i was in the VX dealer getting the cruise control sorted (after the wheel allignment) i asked a guy how much it was for them to do it .£45 but he did say that their equipment was no where near as advanced.
