    It might over time. Maybe a higher weight rated set of coil springs will help?

    I don't have springs on my car I'm sure I so need new to bars as the drivers bolt its maxed out with no TT done, I'm at the alignment shop right now maybe I should have them over correct for the weight

    Whoops. Sorry. My mistake. I thought I read "91" in your info.

    Depending on which T-bars you have, there my be stiffer rated T-bars you can use. The door code will tell you which t-bars you have now.

    Yes it can and I have personally aligned multiple cars with people sitting in the driver seat.

    well i got alignment done(free lifetime)
    front left front right
    actual before actual before
    -0.3 -0.3 camber -0.01 0.0
    2.0 2.0 frame angle 2.0 2.0
    4.6 4.6 caster 4.1 4.1
    0.04 -0.11 toe 0.05 -0.09

    cross camber -0.2 -0.3
    cross caster 0.4 0.4
    cross sai -0.4 -0.3
    total toe 0.09 -.20


    so the toe was off a little, the thing is they dont want anyone in the vehicle while aligning they say there machines account for the weight. but that makes no sense every one is defferent in weight i thought we werer supposed to align with the weight we normally have in the car hence my fat a**. im sure once i sit in the vehicle after an alignment the angles change but how much i am putting new tires on because my last one got messed up from inside wear even with specs like these
