View Full Version : alignment specs needed for a 98 A4

10-11-2007, 10:26 AM
Ive been having a local goodyear shop take care of this for me for the past few times. The first time seemed OK but I don't think ive ever owned the car when it was perfect. They did it last time after I hit a large bump and ever since the car pulls to one side. I check tire pressures and its even all the way around. I have a print out from last alignment, but not with me right now. I am going to post it up later tonite. basically im going back saturday and they are going to get it right regardless, i just need to tell them what specs it needs to be. any and all help will be greatly appreciated.
they already bitched at me once because tehy cant adjust the camber which i understand, but i think the toe is whats out of line and causing the car to pull to one side.

They can equalize the camber from side to side to make it even.

Toe is more important than camber, so i would have them concentrate on that. I don't know what the exact alignment specs are as my manual is at the office

Try google?

thanks everyone for the input. It seems like the car is well within specs....I will check the tire pressure and brakes again, maybe the brakes are rubbing more on one side.... god only knows..

thanks josh
