Tracking Etc Empty Tracking Etc

At my recent MoT I got an advisory (borderline fail) on the nearside track rod end.

Normally I'd have done the job myself in the spring when the weather is kinder to driveway mechanics but current freezing temps & the fact that the end was a borderline fail made me decide to let my trusty MoT tester to do the job for me.

Once done it of course needed laser tracking which required a trip to a tyre specialist.

Got the before & after printouts & the only thing that had changed, as expected, was the front toe in which is adjustable.

I then looked at the readings for things like camber & caster front & rear & toe in rear.

None of these are adjustable; unlike my MGTFs on which there was suspension adjustment required particularly at the rear; but some were red flagged as outside recommended parameters!

I can only assume that suspension wear over the years has caused this but what is the point of setting parameters if you can't make adjustments to meet them?

Tracking Etc Empty re tracking

Hello Pitstop, dissapointing that no adjustment can be made when there is an obvious need for it.

My car also needs attention to tracking as it gently pulls to the left on a straight and even road, strange how this happens when the car has not hit a deep pothole or been kerbed. Just have to take it to a steering specialist for a tweek. R.B.
