    4 wheel alignment...

    im still not very happy after getting tracking done at a local garage. the car still pulls slightly to the left, and i get alot of vibration at high speeds. does anyone know how much a full set-up cost?and any places close to Luton?

    thanks

    im hopefully gonna get mine done 2moro the place usually charges 40-50quid!

    but the tracking will be set to drift very slightly to the left anyway to allow the car to drift to the verge rather than oncoming vehicles in case the driver is asleep etc! but it shouldnt be to noticable!

    This is the same problem I have and MUST get it sorted this weekend. The steering wheel vibrates at speeds between 60-70 MPH and also pulls to the left.

    I`ve had all wheels balanced and tracking done recently but still get the above problem.

    Would 4 wheel alignment solve this ? rather than standard tracking.

    Cannot see any uneven ware on the tyres, rear tyres are still in perfection condition and the tyres on the front are fine as they were only fitted in November last year.

    yep, iv had all four of my wheels balanced, swapped them around just to check the wheels wernt f'kd. Dip, have they actually got a designated ramp, computer link etc?as most places say 4 wheel laser alignment, but they can only do the tracking (toe). (by the way, iv spyed mirage no.2, lookin good )

    fear, where are you getting it done?
    let us know on the results mate!

    Had the 4 wheel alignement treatment today and solved all the problems, had balancing done at the same time and handled perfect.

    Cost me £30 for the 4WA.
