Can anyone recommend someone in or around the Hallam area ( south eastern suburbs, Melbourne ) that specialises in wheels alignments for Landcruisers 105 series.

Looking for someone that takes the time to measure castor angle etc and does not just make guesses to make the client happy. There are 4wd wheel alignments and 4wd alignments. I want it done right the first time.

Thank you.

I searched out this company and have been delighted with the subsequent results. They set up the front end of my troopy post a 2" lift, that was done by ARB, and I am very very happy with the results. They also have a good following of commercial vehicles going through their workshop as well.

A long way to go but ring and book in a time before you travel over....you will not be disappointed!!

Cheers

If it is a solid front axle then the caster reading is easily done with a digital angle level.
If raised, the same amount of arm angle change is the amount of caster lost from the steering geometry.

Nothing "rocket scientist" about it at all.

If an IFS vehicle, then a lift probably hasn't changed the caster angle. but toe in/out and camber will have to be adjusted.

Exactly the same principles apply to heavy or light vehicles.
The average aligners only do what a machine tells them to though. Good aligners don't just specialize in Landcruisers, they also do other vehicles.

Hi Ross, for the avoidance of doubt mine was fitted with an adjustable bush in the left hand hub and it corrected its tendency to drift to the left. Steers nice and straight now!
