Hello, Sorry I know it's a kind of a "how long is a bit of string" question but here goes. Where I live, it is far safer both for traffic and pedestrians and for my alloys and front suspension health to reverse on to my driveway. This involves reversing up a standard highway kerb - there is a ramp but my drive has been widened since the house was built and driving up the ramp would invariably result in grinding the wheelrim/tyre wall over the square kerbstone at the edge of the ramp at some point - so I avoid the ramp if at all possible. I reverse slowly up the kerb onto the driveway in the hope that this will have far less serious effects on the rear tracking/alignment than driving on with the wheels at full lock and of course I creep the car off the drive over this kerb to give it as soft a landing onto the road as possible. (as a first time diesel owner I am far more over-conscious of driveshaft long-term health than I ever was with petrols ) Does anyone else live in a similar scenario and have you had any long term ill effects on your suspension that is probably caused by this or is it just something the occasional trip to the Hunter alignment will control ok? I know its a bit of a vague thing to ask and I apologise but if anyone has any better experience of such a scenario it would be good to hear if it is something to worry about or not as I am going to look into asking the council if I can have a full dropped kerb installed and what it will cost if I have to pay (which I am expecting I will have to) Cheers, John.
