Tracking

Post by marrygold » Thu Jun 27, 2019 7:48 pm

Fitted two new track rods ends and thought i would give nissan a ring for them to do the tracking.
I was quoted £63 ,thats a lot of money to turn two nuts. :o

Yes, but cheaper than the £2000 laser alignment kit you'd need to do it yourself.

Hi marrygold, Was there a lot of play in your track-rods because I change my own which are very easy if you haven't had a accident, to do them you just count how many turns to unscrew them and just do the reverse when fitting the new ones.
Its only a Juke if it's RED.

You should always get the tracking checked if they've been disturbed or changed.

£20-£25 is the usual for a smaller tyre place. Nissan will be forced to charge their dealer set rates.
