A method for determining wheel alignment of an automobile includes the initial step of clamping the chassis of the automobile in a measuring bench. After determining a centerline and datum plane for the automobile, a measuring system calibrated to the centerline and datum plane projects a laser beam parallel to the centerline in the datum plane. The laser beam is movable in the datum plane and in a plane perpendicular to the datum plane. The front suspension of each front wheel hub is then lifted to the proper ride height relative to the datum plane. A m...
A method of determining wheel alignment for the wheels of an automobile where a body of the automobile is clamped on a chassis straightening/measuring bench comprising the steps of: determining a centerline and datum plane for the automobile; calibrating a measuring system to the centerline and datum plane whereby a laser beam is projectable by the measuring system parallel to the centerline in the datum plane and wherein the projection of the laser beam is movable by the calibrated measuring system to selected positions in the datum plane and in a plane...
