    apparently guys at Jax livo are 10000000% certain mirages cannot have camber adjusted at the back...
    i just laugh at their faces and show them the camber bolt in the LCA, still they refuse and try to charge full price...

    I mainly deal with the people @ BT Motorsports or Bridgestone Liverpool, depends when and where the guy who does my alignment how i like it works

    I goto a mate to get tyres fitted and balanced and wheel alignments goto Flemings as they do it all old style, no computers and it's exactly how you want it (just not cheap!)

    watch out for jax smithfield...
    i went there and they used a rattle gun to tighten nuts for the strut bar and it over tightened and bent the braces/bracket on the strut bar
    if your partner EVER say you take turn/intersection/roundabout/corners etc too fast say this...
    the faster you go around corners, the less petrol you waste to accelerate back to the speed limit

    Jax Smithfield are a bunch of fkn idiots...

    they bolted my front wheel back on without the spacer, so the caliper bracket was rubbing the rim. They didnt even notice when they drive the car off/on hoists.....

    They managed to do one side properly, not the other side....
