159 JTDm

159 wheel alignment

Hello all, I droped my 159 JTD in for a routine service. The garage advised that the wheels needed alignment. So they did a 4 wheel alignment ..however I am not sure if I am imagining it but the ride seems very jittery since ... seems as if the rear suspension is too stiff or something.
Any ideas before I return to them as asks to "fix" ?
Thansks !!

Do a search, there are pages about wheel alignment! However the recommended Alfa settings are not what most people go for....!

The thread is above this one " Steering Alignment" in the top section.

If your alignment was out for a while before being adjusted then the tyres will of worn to that profile. if it is now set correctly then the tyres wont be contacting the road correctly until they wear down a bit. hence it feeling a bit twitchy.

As David said it would be good if you could post a pic of the before and after settings
