How low are you running? The only other person I have heard of having trouble getting his tracking done was jdot on his lupo. It was mm's above the road running on 13"'s. He didnt have enough thread on his track rods to adjust them any more.
Not seen another car running that low daily before. Probably for good reason, he could only do like 25mph.

bush's in louth did mine
the alignment tool attaches to the face of the wheel rather then around it so as long as u can get on the ramps they can track it

Whenever I've had tracking done on a decked golf I've had to raise it, but only enough so they can get their gauges over the wheels, then I'd drop it again. Reason I only raise it enough for them to track it is when you drop it again it can mess with the camber, so make sure you only raise it as much as you need to Wink

HAha this thead is oooooolddd!!

I eventually went to Tanvic tyres.. doesnt matter how low you are there, as long as you can get on the ramp.. i had to bring some 2x4 planks to help me get on at the time haha!!!

I have since sold that car.. and just realized i sold it on unbalanced steels :s
