    Nice! Did you actually wear your welcome out at Firestone or is that just a joke that I can't comprehend over the intertubes? How much was that again, $170?

    I'm probably due for an alignment, I haven't had one in several years and while the tramlining isn't terrible, it might be worth trying out your specs.

    Nah they haven't given me any trouble yet. I've been getting alignments every few months as I play with different bushing options and they've been really cool about me coming in with my own specs and stuff. It probably depends a lot on the particular shop and how busy they usually are.

    It's normally $199, but the stores are always running a sale of some sort. Don't remember what I paid for the red car, but I just bought the package for the wife's wagon for $159.

    It's definitely not the same quality alignment that you'll get at the dealership. The steering wheel is never straight afterwards, but the car tracks fine.

    Seriously?? How?
    2. I think my RTAB bushings aren't pressed in to proper depth. TIS says 2.5mm, I measured 6-7 mm from the original bushings. Which one is right?

    Nothing about this looks right at all. Where was this done?

    I don't believe that you would be able to drive in a straight line if that was your alignment. Has your car ever tumbled down a mountain?

    Didn't see any mountains in the carfax. I think it has seen a UFC fight or two with other cars. It drives straight actually, but I know it's not "right" and it will bother me.
