Default Fine tuning suspension.

Yeah, PRoN reminded me of this..

Is there a place in town that does corner weighting? I have been meaning to look around, just forgot.
I would get my own scales but those are 500 plus bucks.

I had to ask Dale about this after watching PRoN episode 3. He said it is a lot more complicated then the video makes out. He didn't know if anyone here in town does it or not. I know we don't have scales or a alignment system to support them.

I'm not to concerned with getting Hope's car done.

I am concerned about my car. The weight is off center as it is with my extra goodies everywhere. I know that it could use a good adjusting. I don't even know if the coilovers come from the distributor set right or not.

Well most people who do this compete in circle track racing. So you might want to look into that area to see who can perform one for you.

There is a guy in town that does the four corner balancing but I don't remember his name. Let me do some investigating and I'll post up what I find.

just watched PRoN. i think i'm good. plus mine were pre-adjusted by GTJilly for her leggy. not too concerned. after our road trip, suspension (minus the clunking and squeaking) seems fine.

setting the preload is just tightening or loosening that really big nut to adjust the ride height?
