Re: Problem w 18s

Quite frankly, I've found that not all techs really know how to do an alignment on a 4wd vehicle. I take my 4x4's to a specific shop with a laser system and a tech that knows what he's doing.

Greetings,

I agree with you. When I had my 2005 Xterra, I ran into alignment problems until I found a tech in all places at Pep Boys. He had the same problem aligning his 4x4 until he realize it was not the same procedure as a sedan. One thing he does after the road test, he puts it back on the rack to check.

Best for now.

Re: Problem w 18s

Ok so after a few days they are running alot better, but it seems when ever I hit a bump it turns the wheel not alot but you can see it move any idea? Or is this normal, the truck does track straight...
