Glad the forum is back. Don't know where I'd find the answers to the many question 155 owners have if it disappeared !
I recently got new tyres for the front wheels. I expected the handling to be changed maybe a bit, but it seemed to make a bigger change than expected.
I thought that it might be worth getting the tracking checked, what with having new tyres and looking to prolong their lives, and maybe this had an impact on the handling.
I went to a garage with one of these laser alignment tracking systems. I watched the guys as they where doing it and you have to feed in the model of the car and then the computer tells you to adjust it this way and that !
My problem with this was that the computer only had 2 Alfa 155 models. One i think was a Q4 (memory lapse), and another model with seemed to span several types.
I would have expected that the tracking figures would be different for all or most of the models. My car is a 97 2.0 16V Sport, and according to the computer should be set up the same as all other 155's bar the Q4.
Is this right ?
The handling still seems off to me, but now I am beginning to doubt myself, and maybe it is all down to the new tyres.
I don't think its a suspension problem either, as the car had its N.C.T (National Car Test) yesterday and passed (surprised me !).
Any thoughts ?
