Been there, done that.
Driving home from work early on New Year's eve (in daylight for a change) gave me a chance to see what potholes have developed along my route since summer. I've been hitting most of them on and off and I've memorised where the majority of them are now, but I still get occassionally caught out.
Those jolts and crashes have been a bit like flying a bomber through "flak" (complete with dazzling
German searchlights (that'd be the headlamps of the VW behind me).
No wonder I get home with battle fatigue.
Anyway, the old crate has taken a bit of a pounding. My rims are ALL wrecked
though Mr MOT man just about let me off with them on the promise that I'd buy new ones.... and my suspension is all over the place.
I had the wishbones and Track Rod ends done not long ago (complete with tracking) but c/o Epsom and Ewell Highways department, my tracking is well out again.
I figured... I keep having it done and it keeps getting shunted deranged again... time I learnt how to do it myself.
A dude a long time ago told me how to do it and it sounded quite simple. Can anyone summarise it into a few paragraphs? I have to put a weight in the footwells and then centre the steering wheel and then measure the distance between the rims.. at least if I can't do it I won't be in any worse position to how it is now (steering pointing to 11 o'clock).
