Hunter Hawkeye Kwik fit.
« on: 13 July 2018, 17:44:16 »

I'm confused. :-\

As far as I can see the figures bear no similarity to those from Jaguar......although they seem more comprehensive.

Another thing.

Why are the 'before' and 'current' measurement different? No adjustment was made so surely they should be the same. ??? ??? ???

There is nothing wrong with the Hunter machine,its the knuckle draggers who'd be doing the adjustments I'd be afraid of

I did mention that he was using data for the X260 where mine is an X250.

"Exactly the same mate" was his articulate reply. :)

The fitter I spoke to 'walked upright' rather than dragging his knuckles along the ground, so I thought I may be OK. :) :-* :-* :-*

Ah, that would be Homo Sapien Monkey, a species known to exist in certain garages, especially those of Kwik-Fittup! ;D ;D ;)

Given the huge difference in front toe, probably worth checking for play before having it sorted.

WIM are the specialist on this sort of thing, might be worth a PM to wheels-inmotion on this site for comment.
