    Hi, I've just done a write up on a method I use to do my tracking myself as the car is too low to get the garages gear on.

    Use it and enjoy it It works brilliantly.

    nice one mate, i remember me dad made his own tracking equipment, he used to fit his own tyres and balance his owm wheels as well, like to see the old tw8t fit a 255/35 though

    Its never going to be as accurate as laser 4 wheel alignment. You can take them places to get them tracked when there mega low.

    Altthough well done on the write up man I can see the effort and time that has been put into it It will be very handy for a good few folk!
