This is where it gets a little complicated. The trained technician using the first reading printout will establish what part of your tracking will require adjustment. Once established he will start these adjustments on your car. Because all the adjustments required are under the car many of these bolts will required to be free be rusty and hard to move, some will simply require a spray of lubricant however some may require some heat to release them, all this takes time and we all know time means money.
