Okay this one may not be as essential as a set of spanners or a socket set, but it’s a bloody clever bit of kit and something of a bargain too.

Now we all know that lowering your car can mess up your wheel alignment and, for decent handling’s sake, it makes sense to get it all checked over immediately after slamming yours into the weeds.

This affordable laser-guided kit from the guys at PassionAutoFrance simply lets you do that with precision and professional accuracy but without the visit to the garage.

Initially designed as the perfect track day companion it has plenty of merits for DIY home use – not least that it’ll pay for itself with just one or two alignments. Not bad for just 65-nicker, eh?

Price £65
