    Hi All, I need some advice as this is driving me insane. I have a VW Passat 2004 1.9 Tdi Highline. Couple of weeks ago I have had a flat front tyre. Lucky for me was that it was flat after i came off the motorway. Having removed the tyre I could see that it’s been worn out on the edges...

    I'm going to be disconnecting the negative cable on my battery to replace the interior in my 99 AEB 1.8t. I've heard of horror stories of cars not starting and running rough. If I disconnect the battery will I need to do a throttle body Allignment? It's a DBC TB I believe. Also, what's the...

    I fitted Eibach springs to my V6 4Motion wagon (originally on 1BA) and have settled them down over the last 500+ miles. I have adjusted the front toe myself with Dunlop gauges but the rear has too much toe in and looks like it has a lot of negative camber on both sides. Has anyone who has done...

    After having replaced TREs, CAs and installed the eibach dampers and springs this summer the car was not handling right: pulling left, hopping when going over bumps etc. Anyway, took it to 2 independent wheel allignment shops but still no improvement. I finally decided to take it to a dealer I...

    A couple of days ago I sent an email to several dealers on Long Island (Sovereign, G/C, Bayside and Legend) to find out if they were able to align a lowered 2000 Passat and how much it would cost. This morning I finally received a phone call from one of the customer service people at Sovereign...

    I have Dunlop wheel allignment gauges and know how to use them. Can you tell me where to actually change the toe as I understand that the outer tie rod is for 'raised toe' so where do I adjust normal toe? :???: Thanks

    I get a really nasty vibration every time I accelerate past 70 MPH, the whole car shudders.... It seems to go away when I get back down below 70.... I just had all four wheels balanced and it still happens. I have my KONIS set at one turn off full hard, 1.6" drop from B&G springs. Anyone...

    Help! Questions about wheel allignment "problems" at dealer. Hi, I brought my car in this morning for an allignment. 7 hours later I call the dealer and ask if my car is done. They told me "yeah." They then told me that the car still pulled to the right after the allignment so they crossed...

    This might fit under the General discussion, but I am posting it here just to be safe. Well, a few months ago when I got my Neuspeed springs put on, I waited about a week to get my allignment done. I had trouble at Firestone, so I went to a smaller shop so I could fit on their lifts. I paid...
