Re: wheel alignment

I believe they can only align stock factory specs for your car if you are dropped..

Re: wheel alignment

the rear you cant adjust... you can go to nissan or a special guy to have the rear beam bent to have it perfectly aligned

Re: wheel alignment

bigdee, I am having this issue as well. I went to Firestone and the guy said (with an attitude) that he can't do the wheel alignment since it's lowered and that the angles are all messed up now. He then tells me he can do it but there will be no warranty.

So, is it better to just get the wheel alignment knowing it won't be perfect to OEM specs rather than not getting a wheel alignment at all?

My car's steering felt no different when I had my H&R's and Tokico HP's put in.
