    I know that for a 4ws alignment, they have to lock the back wheels with a pin and most of the places dun have it (At least in WA there isn't). So normal place won't be able to do it. Bob Jane didn't wan to do my car.

    If i'm not wrong honda does it for like $150?

    Most places can do it in SA, they just need to get the part in to do the rears. At City Discount Tyres they needed to get it bought in from another shop but they did do it in the end.

    Most places can do it, nothing too much different. I did it myself today with my mathematic knowledge from high school and a piece of string and level took a good 60 mins.(I don't reccomend it for others to do unless they know what they are doing )

    pedders did mine succesfully.
    the first 3 places i went to said they would do it, then came back and told me they don't actually have the 4ws locking tool. - wasted a lot of time driving around. I guess honda is a safe bet.

    Just wanted to try what my mechanic told me a decade or so ago, I can't afford to keep finding the time and money to constantly wheel allign my car while I am playing around with my suspension setup
