Exclamation Elite Tracking

Had my car tracked at elite as there suppose to have one of the best tracking systems near me.
They don't even know how to adjust tension rods for the caster..WTF
An all for the nice sum of 95..
NEVER AGAIN..!

From what i understand the Caster is the front & back position the wheel sits in the arch which is what the tension rods can adjust slightly.
I thought adjustable top mounts did the camber & toe..?

Elite are just about the best in the area..been to other places that charge way more and seem to be utterly clueless.

Well i wasn't impressed, I had it tracked at a local place to me before this a few months back, and they tracked it better.
I think i'll be taking my car to abbey, or rising sun in future i would rather travel further and get the job done right.

I thought Track Rods only adjusted the Track (Toe In and Toe Out)

Edit: Read it wrong I thought it said track rod

Well it all plays a part in the overall settings as i'm sure you aware, yes track rods adjust the toe in toe out, but the camber settings can alter that as-well if the camber is adjust.
Still doesn't deviate from the fact that the job wasn't done right..lol
