  • Raised dobinson springs + KYB scorched fitted

    If I knew that it requires so much effort and time I would ask someone else.
    Anyway, after 6h and one bottle jack all done The car drives much better now!
    Should I book for alignment now or wait 100-150kms? Can anyone recommend good place near Surrey Hills?

    When I had my new spring and shocks installed I would have done about 200km. before I was able to get an alignment done - there were no problems and I think it is probably best to let them settle a bit.

    When I was in Sydney a while ago I the NRMA Service Centre at Marrickville to do an alignment for me - it was fine. Don't know if that is too far away for you at Surry Hills - you probably have to be in the NRMA as well.

    PS Woops, just noticed you are in Victoria - Marrickville in Sydney might be a bit of a long drive for a wheel alignment

    Cheers

      I'm in Surrey Hills (Vic) mate, and had my 4 wheel alignment done at Donellans in Box Hill (they also fitted the Lovell springs to the front struts). My Bridgestone 697's have done about 30,000 kms and are wearing evenly.

          I'd book in straight away, if your alignment is out by too much you will chew the buggery out of your tyres. Just ask my brand new Coopers. I waited a week after my lift and I wish I hadn't.

                Cheap SA Alignments

                Just got mine lifted 50mm by Mike NM Paj, and got it aligned after 4 days/ 100km to settle it in well. City Discount Tyres at Ridgehaven on the Golden Grove Rd. did the Alignment for Mates Rates $50 Front & Rear, ask for Tim, Tim and His Wife are the New Managers.
