Post-alignment Test Drive
The first impression of the new alignment is that the steering is lighter at low speed. This is welcome since it was heavy before and does not seem to have come at the expense of higher speed resistance.
On the road, the car now feels very slightly slower on turn-in. However, it now feels consistent side to side. Before the alignment, the car always turned right a little better than it did left.
Finally, the wheel is still not quite straight when going straight ahead but it is better than it was. This is just a minor niggle since it does not affect the driving at all. I’ll get around to fixing it sometime but overall, I am happy. I think it is now time to stop tinkering and spend more time driving. However, I really wanted to fix the alignment before putting on more miles this summer.
