apparently, kwik fit, halfords, DD tyres and ATM all cant track my car as its 'too low' or 'has spacers and is also too low' The balding gentleman with the combover at ATM told me id have to find a place who use 'the old looking glass method' :S didnt give any specifics or help me find anywhere so this is another plee for help. i know you guys have cars lower than mine and have had them tracked using lasers, but its starting to look like im not allowed into that club :x

Lol, that's not even too low. The tracking gear sits on top of the tyre with metal prongs at about 10.30 and 1.30 on a clock face.

The reason they make up bullshit about it not being track-able, is because you can't get a lowered car perfectly tracked, so to save on the agro of customers coming back saying its not tracked they just outright refuse to do it.

Try going to a proper garage and not some shit chain company.

I've seen lower cars tracked, as long as they can get it on the ramp shouldn't be a problem. I had a 80mm drop corsa tracked, camber is a different matter

the thing that hangs off the wheel couldnt get under the front splitter, ive found a place where my mate got his golf done, and his is literally scraping the floor, so i'll inquire, its not so much the camber i care about, i know it wears tyres quicker but its not that severe, its not exactly hella flush :L i just want my wheels to point in the same direction haha and my steering wheel to be straight, OCD and wonky wheel, drives me ****ing mad

I took my low low corsa to easyfit for a tracking and camber setup when I fitted my coilovers... At first they said they couldn't do it but only because the machine was down. I had to leave it with them overnight and they sorted it first thing the following day... They were sound as,

Probly just the area difference ;)
