    confused Have I got this right???

    I have recently lowered my Veccy (30-35mm)
    I took it to get a full 4 wheel alignment, and made sure all the wheels were 'in the green'. However, when i told the guy what i had done & what i wanted doing, he indicated that regardless of whether or not they aligned all the wheels, because i had lowered the suspension, getting the wheels in the green was in fact pointless?
    They set it up anyway as per a 2.2 SRI (My car is a 2.2 elegance, is that correct?)

    I run 17 inch GSI alloys too, so I guess what I am asking is, have i done the correct thing? - And if not, what's the corrective procedure?

    After all my money & hard work, the last thing i want is for it to scrub tyres & handle really badly...

    Thanks

    He should have got them as close as possible to the correct values.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    I can't see why they can't do anything, sounds like a lazy person who doesn't want to work for the money.

    It sould be ok if he's set it right, but on ocasions the camber may need setting up.
