Sounds more like the dealer didn't get around to doing it in time and had to keep the car a second day. I got mine aligned a couple of months ago, and mine also took two days. I made an appointment and dropped it off at 7:30 in the morning for a front end alignment, activation of the Sirius radio, and the anti-freeze TSB. I was called at 2:30 by the service manager to let me know they wouldn't be able to finish that day. I asked them what work they had left and was told that they hadn't had time to start on it yet! Makes me wonder what the point of making an appointment is! A front end alignment should take an hour, 2 hours at most.jconnolly1119 said:any one had this done yet????
had mine done yesterday for a left pull at hwy speeds. They had to keep the car for two days.....evidently it's not a very easy process.....but she does drive straight as an arrow now
that's kind of what I was trying to figure out, but like I said I personally know NOTHING about doing alignments.....still sounds far fetchedCUEBALL said:Remove the engine cradle to do an alignment? Anyone have any reason for this??
Or maybe also an experience issue at the same time. Who knows? I've never heard of this complex of an alignment procedure on any normal production car I know of, I imagine it might be new or seldom seen at some dealerships.Still, in answer to your real question, it should take no more than part of a day, it's a scheduling/manpower issue most likely. Kinda like going to the doctor or dentist with an appointment, yet you're still kept waiting 2 hours before you're seen
Isn't it great when experts enlighten us. Lots of light Sleeper300! Thanks.Sleeper300 said:The process get more involved when you take into account ..... factory spec Toe-In . Now Camber and Caster are more complicated and maybe for a later Post.
I sure hope this sheds some light on how Alignments affect handling.
