United Kingdom 2011 Freelander 2 TD4 GS Manual Santorini Black
Wheel Alignment

Morning folks. Currently sitting in McDonalds while the FL2 is in ATS getting a 4 wheel alignment as it's been pulling slightly to the left and that tyre has more wear on the outside rim plus there's a bit of steering wheel judder at higher speeds

Guy in ATS seemed less than impressed that I'd arrived and when I said it was an FL2 he said they were notorious for seizing (didn't say what) and if it was seized he'd have to refund me.

Will be interesting to see what they say when they call, which should be soon. Learned to drive in 2011.

Very doubtful that the adjustments will make any difference to cure the wear you are experiencing with the NSF tyre.

Are you talking from experience? Laughing Common sense isn't very common.

We had ours done about a month ago now after fitting new tyres all round, asked the tyre guys (who couldn’t do a 4 wheel alignment themselves) and they said it was definitely worth it, pulling to the right all the way to DTD in Worthing, £62 for the adjustments and now drives dead straight! Thumbs Up

Was the car involved in a small crash on the front left side?
If not, check the left front hydrabush as something doesn't "sit" right...

Not to mention that some of those values, even after alignment, seems a little bit off.
Especially the toe values, that give the main drive feeling and are the major culprit for uneven wear.
Anyway, see below...

That's disappointing that mine hasn't made much difference. Or that they are still out of the range you've posted Alex. Learned to drive in 2011.

Did you get a “before” report along with the after? (Should have) Regards
