Wheel Alignment

Does anyone know what can be adjusted and what can’t on 8P? In terms of toe, caster, camber on front/rear etc.

I’ll be getting my alignment done soon and don’t want to be getting fobbed off.

Also, is Kwik Fit any good for these kind of things?

If Kwik fit have the machine for doing 4wheel alignment then you should have no problem , when the guy is doing it if you have questions ask him

Knick Fit would be the last place I would have working on my car. Much better to find a good tyre dealer with the Hunter alignment rig. If you have Quattro then it’s more import to have it done right.
fwd cars usually have adjustable toe only.

Thanks guys as always.

If my camber is out, I’m assuming that would be a case of suspension arms/bushes needing replacing?

Car hasn’t been involved in an accident as far as I know.

I’d avoid kwik fit at all costs. I’ve had to go there for years with my work van because it’s a fleet van and I haven’t got a good word to say about them. Just because they have hunter 4 wheel alignment equipment doesn’t mean they will do a good job of it.
Do a bit of research online and find someone independent near you that specialises in 4 wheel alignment. It will probably cost you more but in this day and age you get what you pay for.

Maligned camber would be more than just bushes, more likely a lower arm or strut bent and usually caused by a big impact with a kerb.
