R32 alignment
« on: May 05, 10, 16:16 »
I live in the greater Portland area.  I have coilovers on my car and just replaced my tires.  The inside edges were pretty well worn while the rest of the tire was still in pretty good shape.  I dont think I need adjustable camber plates as my car really isn't that low.  If I had to guess I would say maybe an inch or inch and a half at the most.  I have had my car aligned before at Kahlberer Alignment but I dont think they know enough about my car to do it right.  Most of the information that alignment shops have on my car states that there is no adjustment for the fronts.  My research has shown that there is; however it involves the 3 bolts that hold on the A arm.

So here is the question.

Does anybody know of an alignment shop that is familiar with the mk 4 R32 and would be willing to adjust it properly?  I'm not looking for some place that you drive by or have been to once.  I really want to find someone that knows what they are doing.  It has been my exerience that shops don't like it when you try to tell them what you know about your car that they may not.  I have djustable rear control arms for the back. 

Thanks for any help in advance.  For the record I may be willing to drive if I am convinced the shop KNOWS exactly what I am talking about.

There is an alignment shop up here called Dale's alignment that did an alignment on my buddies R32 and dialed it in perfectly.

If you say that you're up for the drive, might be worth your while that or at least a phone call.

Hope that helps!

What about a dealer? Maybe its different in the states but one of the dealers on the island (100 miles north of where I live) is fully set up to do proper alignments/set camber. Might be worth checking into??

I actually ended up finding a place in Portland called Johns Alignment.  They align just about anything from RV's and campers all the way to full fledged race cars.  I spoke to them first after being referred by the mechanics at BC Motorsports.  I went in and was able to speak with the tech.  He seemed very knowledgable and having the coilovers didnt intimidate him in any way.  Its stuff he works on regularly.  I made the appointment and am very happy with the results.  Its definately where I'll be going from here on out. 

In case anybody else is looking..
