Not trying to steal from Fishah's impromptu mod day but we are going we going to do an alignment at my house in Amherst NH tomorrow afternoon.

I can get caster/camber within 1/10th°. Toe in is a bit harder and can take some trial and error to get it right. I use a variation of the
Smart Camber Tool.

Send me a PM or email for the address if you're interested in doing your own alignment or if your car is too low to get on one those expensive hunter machines. Smile

Jim

I don't use any squares, there's enough dirt on the garage floor so that the tires slide easy enough. Smile

I don't use any stinking strings either, if your rear wheels are off you're SOL. Laughing

We can do it again some another time. I didn't decide 'til after Bill's post.

I didn't go Fishash's today.

Might do this again. It didn't go as well as I thought it would.

well i didnt make its to bills either jim. got as far as billymacs. he took the measurements and some pics for the console. he took it for a spin. he pulled into the ford dealership with it. they must of thought we were going to trade it in for the cash for clunkers. thats not going to happen. so im getting ready to head down to bills place. i called home. that was a mistake. wont go into details. so i fought the traffic back to so.portland. nothing ever goes as planned.
