    Nope, I just changed my outer tie rod ends and need to get the toe set properly. My buddy is going to do it for me at the local toyota dealership for $25 and I wanted to make sure I had the correct specs.

    Re: A6 Alignment Specs

    did you coat the threads in anti-seize first?? Its a good idea if you want to have a chance to break them loose in a few years.
    If he's got a Hunter alighnment machine, the specs should be in the PC already. If the camber is too far out in front, you'd better take it to a dealer. The subframe has to be shifted to equal camber, which is a bear to do. There is also vertical toe adjustments that are related to bump steer, which only an Audi dealer will know how to set properly (although they may skip that step unless you ask them to set it).
    Sorry I dont work up there anymore, otherwise id be able to help you out.

    Damn.. yeah I think everything but the toe should be fine. I took the car in for a couple of recalls recently (that's how i found out the 'rod ends were bad) and they quoted me $170 for the alignment, now i know why it's so much.

    Yeah, um, it didn't. One of his co-workers got fired last week for working on someones car for $$. So I guess I'll have to get it done somewhere else now.

    Re: A6 Alignment Specs

    Yeah, a lot of dealerships are getting very finicky over who works on what. Ive had to deal with a new tech bring in 3 'friends' cars in the past 4 weeks for major work off the clock. He wont be fired as of now, but the managers are re-issuing warnings for everyone about doing side work.
    If you take it to O'Patrick or Gurley Leap, make sure you get a before/after printout, and ask if they do drop-toe adjustment. ;) They'll hate you for asking, but its worth it.

    allroad 2002 camber/alignment specs

    Hi TheBlueMartin.

    I need the specs of the Audi Allroad quattro 2.7 t 2002. Do you have?

    Are they the same of the mmmjboner“s 2000 A6 Avant Wagon 2.8L Quattro?

    Thanks in advance.
