Just a quick topic on what people think and make of tracking / alignment and geometry set-ups. I currently drive a B6 A4 Quattro, whenever I have carried out any work in relation to the suspension (I.e-suspension arms, tie-rods.etc) I have always taken the car to have tracking done. Similarly, whenever I have had tyres replaced and have been asked if I want my "tracking" doing - I have always obliged. This has previously been carried out by a blend of high-street chains (ATS.etc) and I have always been told, every time - that my tracking is "out". My questions are, how does your tracking go "out" - surely if toe is controlled by the tie rod/steering rack you would need to back off a nut or at least bend the rack/rod somehow, same for the suspension - I know camber is not adjustable on the front of mine. I guess worn bushes could be to blame for some run-out, but I replaced all the arms, balljoints.etc last year. Is it a money making ploy? I bit the bullet last week and paid a specialist in the Merseyside area £90 for a full wheel alignment and geo-set up. I must say, the car feels and handles differently - much more precise and predictable now. Does that mean I should avoid the likes of ATS doing alignments so they don't mess around with anything?
