I need to review the alignment of the wheels. The garage I am working with has a computer system ( HUNTER) which has only references for 122 Volvo. Are the data's the same for 122 and for my American P1800S from 1969 ? Where could I get the data's otherwize ? Any other computer system adapted to this car ? Michel D Belgium

Welcome to the forum, Michel.

Your 1969 Volvo 1800S has a similar front suspension as the 122 but with some components assembled differently.

If you car has modern radial tires the Volvo factory alignment specifications may not be the ticket. Also, non-OE wide wheels and aftermarket anti-sway bars may call for non-OE alignment specs.

Looking here...

vclassics.com/archive/align.htm

...we see a discussion about 122/1800 wheel alignment to include the mention of the factory specs.

The recommended front alignment specifications in the article are for maximizing handling but can be modified to suit your driving style and to increase tire life.

You may wish to use the 122 settings already stored in the Hunter alignment machine as this will get your car very close to the ideal alignment.
