Decat & Alignment Questions!

Ok guys, finally took the plunge & gone full decat

Quick question about that, the pipe has been joined up the the Centre Section, but when it was up on the ramp I could feel the joint blowing slightly... Does this matter too much or should I get it sealed?!

Also, extremely NOT happy, had the tracking done last month cos of inner tyre wear. Took the car to a different garage today & the tyre wear is even worse now, so looks like the previous garage didnt even do the work :evil:

Chances of free camber adjustment & 2 new tyres as compensation?!

once tyres have started to wear then they will always wear in a similiar manner even if properly adjusted, thats why recomend is to get sorted when fitting new tyres.................(this is often the misleading case with "part-worns" off another vehicle)

it will be fairly obvious if the "other" garage has done any work as the "2nd" garage will confirm the settings, or not as the case may be??
* bear in mind that these settings will probably be out once umworn tyres are fitted so need re-checking

get the centre joint sealed properly and the car will run better
