I need alighment. I got a b-16 with dc header that is hanging low. They cannot do a computerize alighment because the header is in the way. How do I do a manual alighment. When the car goes straigt the steering wheel is at the 10 degree position. :cry:

I wouldnt put it against them> a lot of shops try to BS there customers. Just for fun, i took my crx to a local shop and told them i had an over heating problem.(i really didnt) they tried to sell me a new radiator, water pump, and T-Stat plus 600$ labor because of a bogus problem. They also try tried to explain it in a way that would be "over the avarage customers head". Ove of the many reasons i dont like shops.

Uh... OK? The alignment machine at our shop has four reflective plates that attach to the outside of the wheels, and the sensors pick up toe, camber and caster from that. Even if the header was low, they should be able to get it on the lift somehow, we do it all the time with rather low vehicles.

Do you realize that your alignment can be perfect and your steering wheel off 10'. If the car is tracking and handling correctly then do like someone else mentioned :idea: Pull the plug in the center of your steering wheel, unbolt the bolt, pull your wheel off and put it back on in the correct position. Takes 5 minutes! Do not attempt this while driving :lol:

But more common is that someone played with the alignment or mods changed the alignment and then someone changes the steering wheel position and gets the rack off of center and causes the rack to wear uneven. The rack is supposed to be centered and tensioned to the center point. Some cars this is so bad it turns more one way than the other.
