The article discusses the measurement stand and devices used to carry out wheel and axis geometry measurements, ie Beissbarth ML4000 and Bosch FWA 4630. The results presented during the measurement of wheel and vehicle axle geometry using the above devices for three examples of cars: VW Tiguan, VW Passat and Citroen Berlingo. Next, a detailed analysis of the obtained measurement results was carried out in the context of their accuracy and recommendations of the manufacturers of the tested vehicles. The next part of the paper compares the technologies of conducting measurement procedures for these two types of diagnostic devices. The paper was concluded with the preparation of applications.
