HOW TO DO AN ADVANCED SEARCH.

Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:56 pm by Admin


For the benefit of 944Hybrids users there are two search functions available for you to use.
The purpose of this sticky is to explain the "Advanced Search" function because it is much more powerful and is the best choice when researching information.

When you log on to the site a list of options is shown in a line at the top of the page. One option is labelled "Search", use this option (NOT the search box lower down on the right).

After you click on the upper search option, a drop down box appears. At the bottom of this box is a radio button marked "Advanced …

DIY alignment

Post  948inVA on Tue Feb 05, 2013 4:51 pm

After trying to have my alignment done at a vw/audi shop and having them fail miserably, I'm thinking about buying some tools to try and do this myself. Local 944 specialists want $300+ to do it. Anyone have some advice on aligning these cars the old fashioned way?

I took mine to Pep Boys, hung out with the guy as he did it. I think it cost about $40.

I had a thread here where I asked the same question. The folks on the board convinced me not to. Couldn't find the thread.

I read a thread on this on rennlist a week ago or so. It's doable with some special tools by running strings here and there and attaching arms to the bumpers and such. Looks like a PITA. My race shop charges me $240 a pop.

If I could find a competent shop to do it for $100 it would be a no brainer, I just don't think it's possible in this area (DC metro).

Have you tried [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] ? I had them do a 4 wheel alignment on one of my 944s a while back. I don't remember how much, but thought it was reasonable at the time.
