Do Techs Really Know Alignements Today?

Recommended Posts

We hold in-house ASE clinics in our shop. Today I was doing a class on alignments and found it amazing that when the techs (youger techs) are not in front of the Hunter computer screen, they struggle with knowing which way to move control arms to adjust for camber and caster. Years back we had to know the alignment angles in our head, not relying on the computer.


These new machines are much faster and more accurate, but is there a trade off with respect to technician actual know-how?
