Post Libra geometry setup
On Friday i booked the car into Avia auto in Bridgend south wales for a full geometry check and setup. Basically i feel that my best wasn't good enough because when cornering hard-ish i feel the rear might break away and lost a little confidence in this.

I have had a few results back to say i have set up the rears perfectly but has to check the corner weights to be certain. He checked the fronts and the front wheels are ever so slightly giving positive camber. He is going to put shims apparently on the front somehow but will find out how but has something to do with the lower ball joints. Once he has completed this and the tracking i will get a print out and then he will start to look at the corner weights etc. Should be back for the weekend if it all goes to plan. I will try and upload the printout, but will be my first time

Look forward to seen the results, you put the shims behind the top wishbone mounts.

There's a GAZ dealer near Me that offers a similar service, I was toying with the idea too. Be interested to find how You get on.

I was surprised when he told there was positive camber on the front especially as I spent all my time and efforts at the rear, lol

Can't wait to push it :evil:

Made a visit to avia autos and have decided with there assistance to modify the top front wishbones to make them adjustable, I will send some pics in once complete.
