Alignment Specs & Recommendations

Hi

 

I’m struggling to find online the OEM spec for the 981 GTS with the Sport Chassis option. If anyone has it to hand or a link, I’d be very appreciative.

 

Also, if there’s a non-OEM spec which people have enjoyed, would love to hear that too. I’m not after anything extreme or lairy, just nicely balanced with a good turn in.

 

In a similar vein, I’m also hoping for recommendation for somewhere to do the work in South Yorkshire, or surrounding counties.

 

Last but not least, also looking for a specialist recommendation, in similar area, for general maintenance and servicing.

 

Thanks, Stu.

I don't know the specs, although I suspect there's not much adjustment on the front anyway for camber that is (tends to be where most people make adjustments from OEM).  

 

You're not too far from Centre Gravity (North of Birmingham), that would be my highest recommendation for a geometry set-up, they are the best in the business.

Although Centre of Gravity is great, it just doesn't make any sense (my opinion) to use them if you have stock suspension. They won't be able to use the skills on anything....pointless. Plus they aren't cheap.

 

Near them there is A-Line, a chap who worked at the Lotus Racing team, no need to book, he does an incredible job on stock suspension for a fraction of the price! Just my 2 cents....

Whilst I largely agree, finding a garage who can actually do an alignment properly seems pretty tricky whereas going to CG offers reassurance that it'll be done right

 

I have had 3 alignments now (because I've been messing around with specs) and each one has been totally different from the last despite having made no changes in between. These have ranged from local garages to proper tuning shops and my eventual conclusion is that there are so many variables at play it all ends up coming down to how conscientious the operator is in getting it setup correctly to begin with.

 

That said, A-Line sounds like a good shout from what you have said.
