    W126 steering geometry

    Anyone have the setting angles handy for the W126? Replaced the brake[1] rod joints, and that made the tracking a bit wrong, so I thought I'd check the caster/camber etc. before resetting the tracking. [1] or whatever you want to call it. The one that goes backwards from the track arm to...

    Tracking Geometry

    Took the W211 over to WIM at Chesham and had Tony himself fine tune the tracking. In fairness I thought the car was reasonably well aligned but as I had recently had new tyres put on I thought it would be a good idea. Wow.....now even crisper, not a hint of pull and a beautifully centred...

    Little "heads up" ( geometry related )

    If your car is submitted for a geometry under warranty due to a pull left or tyre wear please ask for a printout of the results. Warranty or not you are entitled to a copy of the final results but often owners are told otherwise. The reason i suggest you have past evidence is future...

    Geometry check

    I had a geometry check done today, just the check, no adjustments made. This is the read out I got: The guy who did it said I only needed to adjust the toe out. I got it checked because of excessive wear on the inside of the off side front tyre. Can anybody interpret the read out?
