Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual: Setting vehicle to initial position for wheel alignment

If measured values are outside specified tolerances, this may be because the vehicle is inclined.
Right-hand drive vehicles or e.g. vehicles with an automatic gearbox may lean to one side slightly.
This is due to the installation position of the assemblies and their associated weight transfer and is normal.
–  In such cases it is essential to measure dimension -a- at the rear on both sides.
–  Correct any differences as required.
On the front axle, compensate by adding weights to the top of the respective suspension turret.
On the rear axle, compensate by adding weights to the respective side of the luggage compartment.
Sand-filled sacks (weighing approx. 10 kg) are suitable for this.
