Many thanks

Not bad for an old man car lol!

Need to tinker with camber, but got the toe sorted.
Said it wasn't too bad, it was off the scale bad!!

Look at the caster specs:



While waiting also ended up helping a chap undo his track rod ends on a 52 plate Audi A8. V8 Quattro, nice motor!

I got the track rod ends done on the focus, and it drove like a pig. Brought it to a mate and it was nearly as bad as yours, but not quite lol.

Hehe! It's mad how far out things get after just swapping something out like that.

The caster reading is having a fit due to being way more positive than the factory spec, but that is a good thing

The toe wasn't even reading a number, just had two crosses! "Toe? Computer says no!" kind of thing lol

Hmmn! Looks like the thread is toast then

Added a last pic to the PB account, made from a random pic of the drift track at Japfest Donington:




It'd be a ton of fooling to try reinstating all the images, not sure what to do TBH...

There's been a load of folk in the same boat chum. It'd be a huge task reinstating each and every pic with a new host. Photobucket have really damaged their rep with this decision. Recently, it was plagued with loads of ads, and was just nasty to use or view anything on.

Even using old threads as reference material is now nigh on impossible.

Maddening and saddening.

Anyhoo, how's you bud? We were over in blighty for 10 days there. Spent a while in London doing the touristy stuff like the Thames rocket (wow) and then headed up to Elveden forest to centerparcs. Had a total blast. Although I haven't been walking right for the last week or so as we had to cycle everywhere. Nuff said ..... Lol.

Sorry to hear you were er, saddled with mobility problems, but glad you enjoyed your visit over all man

Pants about the pics, not shut the account down in case they see sense, doubt that though...

Okay here in general terms anyway, thanks my friend, just applying for all sorts of apprenticeships. Take a crap wage for a year to learn a career, no word back yet. Guess 36 year old farts are not prime material! lol.

Just got 4 coats of 1000P on the car finally too...
