4 wheel Laser alignment
I have a 2003 156 2.4 JTD and the inner edges of the front tyres were very worn. The MOT is due and due to bangs and squeaks, I have just replaced all 4 front wishbones and drop links. I have also replaced the front tyres.
I have read on here that when the 4 wheel alignment is carried out, that the rears should be set up first, then the fronts, however, yesterday, I had this done and the guy said, no, that he would set the front and then the rear. As far as I recall,he said he set the front at 0 degrees and the rears, 1.5 degrees toe in each side.
The initial feeling was that the car is not so sharp in the steering - it was previously too much toe out according to the guy. Anyway, I have to run it for a couple of weeks and go back to get it checked - they seem quite a genuine bunch of guys.
Can you confirm that they can set up the front then the rear and what should the car be set at? I have searched the site but cannot find the info for my car.
