    Re: Suzuki Grand Vitara 3.2 V6 Brakes

    they were going to be my next choice.... I'm surprised they were not available locally. I buy a lot of my GV consumables from Amazon, they are great.

    On the idea of roof racks - I asked Heinz:

    that's what TWAT told me too after 3 attempts, even though it WAS driving straight before they touched it. Eventually ended up at Best Drive Bree street and been driving straight ever since. [emoji41]

  13. Re: Suzuki Grand Vitara 3.2 wheel alignment

    What is important is that it is a 4wd alignment, the rear wheels need to be aligned too.
