With the use of the spreader bar during an algnment, is it put behind or ahead of the front axel? Or, is it put between the sides of the wheels that have the tie-rod?

What is the amount of pressure needed?

I have always wondered AND at the next alignment I will be sure to 1) Make they use the spreader bar and 2) To have it positioned properly.

BTW, is my understanding correct, that the spreader bar is used during an alignment for MBZs because as the car moves down the road, its suspension has a natural tendancy to out?

Thank you in advance,
