✪ Alekshop ⎢Now Offering Corner Weight Balancing in House

Now your car can be balanced, corner weighted and aligned in one place.

Setting the car properly for the street or for the track is not an easy task. Surely it becomes easy if you have the right equipment and knowledgeable stuff. We have both!

With the change in the geometry of the suspension when lowering the car, itís crucial to maintain the right ride height and perfect weight distribution. In order to achieve that, it requires more than just to align the car and tell the customer your car is done. The proper way to do that, is to place your car on the scales and measure each corner to see how the car is balanced. Of course prior to that, we ensure that the ride height is set to be the same on all four corners so we can get our base line readings. Once you get that out of the way, now you can play with the suspension and adjust each corner to achieve the perfect balance.
