    wheel alignment

    my car skidded and hit the pavement, as a result the left wheel seems to be misaligned.

    can someone suggest a reliable and affordable no-nonsense kind of workshop to get this fixed please. cheers!

    any local tyre shop should be able to do the job for you.
    what sort of speed did you hit the pavement ?? bent shock or wishbone

    Get a full 4 wheel alighment done and get them to check your castor and camber as well, if possible go somewhere that will do you a full print out, this way it should show up if you have damaged any of your suspension components.

    Might be worth getting a mechanic to have a look underneath it as well to check it all out.

    I tried Kwik fit, all they could do was tracking, and wouldn't touch my car cos it's lowered.

    After a few searches on here I found http://www.alignmycar.co.uk/

    (suggested by LeeGSI I think)
    Found a place local who did a fantastic job, cost £100 but believe me they had issues with mine as it was so far out of alignment ie. job should have taken 2 hours, they had it from 8.30 until 4 getting it spot on.
