Suspension Tuning DiscussionDiscussion forum for general topics regarding suspension tuning
Quattro Suspension / Alignment... is my mechanic correct?
I'm having a Vogtland/Koni Sports installed at my local German Auto Shop. (They said 6 Hrs to install the kit ($500) (sound right?).
Also they said they cannot do wheel alignments on quattros, as it requires a special rack and tools. (The mechanic said Audi suspensions require jacking the car with a tool 40mm off the ground to set toe). First time I ever heard this. He said if it's NOT done this way it'll go straight, but the Quattro System won't work correctly and can cause massive understeer.
I found a shop in town (other than my horrific dealer Niello) that said they align Audi's. But I couldn't ask if they did it that way (it was a receptionist, she said they do Audi's all the time for $67.00/4Wheel Alignment). This place was recommended by a guy in my office since this was the only place that would align his GT3000).
So is this correct, is there a "special" way to do Audi Alignments??? Should I look around elsewhere?
