    Top mount swap! Alignment Q

    Planning to fit my new top mounts tomorrow. Once done I'm expecting to need to have the alignment checked over. What's adjustable on these cars (96 1.8T Sport FWD), front and back as I don't want to shell out for a full alignment (120) if I don't need to

    toe in is adjustable, caster fixed and camber can be equaled out side for side by moving the subframe a few degrees side to side.

    The rear beam is apparently mounted on slightly adjustable mouning points, but this again will only allow you to equal the toe either side.

    I hope that makes sense. If you have not moved the rear it is more likely ok, same for the front camber. So a good old fashioned tracking will probably suffice, maybe with a quick check on the camber so you can deceide if ites worth spending extra cash to align.
