I had four new tires put on my 2004 Rubicon about a month ago. While I was at tire dealer they did an alignment and told me both front tires were pointing toward one another. They said they had "heat it up" to do the alignment. Not sure if that meant a blow torch or what...
Jeep rode great for a few weeks other than on slow, tight right turns (like pulling in the driveway or tight parking spot) when I would hear a thunk sound from passenger side front.
So 4 days ago the thunk stopped but now I have lots of play in the steering wheel. I have discovered that the passenger side sway bar is no longer connected. Probably broken but I'm not a mechanic.
So...I have 4 questions...
1. Could the alignment have initiated the break?
2. Is it safe to drive?
3. How much is it going to cost to replace/fix?
4. Do I have any leverage to go back to tire dealer if the alignment was the cause?
