Front End needed massive track or toe in adjustment. Rear minor tweak. He said the front was so bad I shouldve heard Tyre Screeching!
Set the car in Sport/aero mode as per specs for the alignment but the genius said let's split the settings difference between aero and standard ride height. Just Perfect! It's now running zero toe in at aero which suits freeway driving but reverts to 3 degrees for normal ride height around town. After 20 km it has transformed turn in and feel around town and roundabouts. Highway could be hands off. Best $ spent on Jeep so far. PM if interested in the business.
So who is this genius? He might be the go to guy for Sydneysiders.
