4-Wheel Alignment, Manchester/North West
Does anyone know of anywhere in the NW that can do a proper 4-wheel alignment on my 159 SW? I'm looking for somewhere with a Beissbarth or Hunter machine that can measure caster, camber, toe, KPI, setback, included angles, toe-in-turn, etc. etc. not just basic tracking.
As well as wanting to optimise the car's handling, rolling resistance and tyre wear, I'm also looking to get a feel for how they're set up from the factory and to try some experiments to improve both the way the car 'feels' and how it responds - particlarly to get the very 'dead'-feeling rear end to take more interest in the proceedings! I'd like the car to turn more around the gear lever than around the rear axle as it does now (or at least that's how it feels, as did the 156 I owned several years ago).
If anyone knows of a suitably-equipped workshop, I'd be very grateful for the heads-up.
