Geometry Issues And Knocking Noises

Recommended Posts

Lexus had my car for nearly a week to solve a low pitch hollow knocking noise when going over bumps in the road. They replaced all of the suspension components on the drivers side!! but still have not cured it. They handed the car back to me saying it may be fixed and they have also set the geometry. Here is the print out my car is a Lexus IS300. Am I going to have trouble with these settings. The steering feels a bit vague.

i have the same type of knocking but only on braking.Lexus geom is wrong and needs to be setup properly.try www.wheels-inmotion.co.uk.that may be why your car steering feels vacant.Mine has been checked recently and ive been told that something may be loose,its not a replacement issue.IMHO-lexus fob people of daily,I take my cars to LOC favoured places like charlesworth motors nr Manchester.

Im not happy with that report?

The OSF Camber is wrong.... The before and after SJI positions are imposable.... and i have never seen the Castor positions so high on a Lexus.... So i question the machine/operator.

The before settings could be out because they replaced the bottom arm while trying to cure the noise problem. I will get it done porperly and send lexus sheffield the bill. Looking closely at the limits of adjustment on the printout shows that they have not even adjusted it enough to meet their own limits.

Thanks for the quick response.
