I used Spot On in Napier, but not again!

Ive never heard of them. I take my cars to Karamu from Napier whenever I need a wheel alignment.

EUREKA! I found it & it wasn't in the yellow pages. Have found someone who knows how to do a wheel alignment. The car drives perfectly thanks to Dean at Bay City Motors in Napier. After the first alignment (the car handled like s**t)a clunk developed in the right front. No one could say what it was. It was only at low speed when backing out the drive etc. So after repacing top mounts (both sides) right ball joint & tie rod end the clunk was still there. Replaced the half shaft, still no joy. Turned out to be the wheel bearing, although there was no rumble & no noticeable play.

Raised it with the mechanic who was not happy, and undertook to have words with his subcontractor (from a major tyre chain), and deleted it from the bill no questions asked.
