Yes, but the multi-link suspension is pretty tricky to line up. You have
to know the proper order in which to make each adjustment otherwise you
just end up going in circles, undoing everything you've done so far.

I've seen plenty of shops that take one look at all the arms under there
and just throw up their hands.

You also want to find people who know how to set these cars up to handle
well, not just set them to factory specs. For example, you should dial
all of the toe-in out of the rear and dial much of it out of the front
too. Does wonders for transitional response...
