Anybody use, or know of any good alignment tools like the smart camber/smart tool deals? Any experience with them? I want a little better method than the ol' jackstands and string method

TIA

We now use the toe plates like the picture above, and a SmartCamber tool for camber.

These tools require virtually no set-up, just need level ground to work on. And they pack up easily.

For toe, you lean the plates against each front wheel (centered by viewing the tire thru the holes), then compare the measured distance across from a tape inserted in the slots fore/aft.

You can find the SmartCamber tool thru other vendors on sale sometimes. I bought mine direct from SmartRacing Products 'cuz I was getting one of their steering wheel quick-disconnects at the same time. Nice stuff, but a bit spendy $$$ for how simple it is. But it works + is portable.

Note that they sell the toe plates with laser & dial indicator. Some of the more well-funded guys in the paddock have these, but the $49 tape measure plates work pretty well at one-eighth the cost of the laser set.

Good stuff to watch for on Ebay.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
