That will also tell you how to center your steering wheel. If you are still stumped take it to Albuquerque tire and have Tom (the owner) check it out. His alignment guy is good.

any ideas.. i am not going back to that place. at lease not for mechanic work.. the parts guys are nice and i have no complaints..

after being told " get lower profile links for disconnects and to flip my sway bar" from the mechanic.. i have no faith in their ability.. in fact id sooner try and break it my self before taking it back and I'm damn good at breaking stuff!!

so any ideas? simple fix? or am i looking at another alignment or something?

thanks again guys!
Sorry I didnt say something, thought you liked them, but I for one, dont trust them. They told me I need over $500 worth of work done on my old Toyota and it need about 1 hour worth of work done. Told me my rear spring where bad, because of wheel hop around tight corners and I have a lock diff in the rear.

i then asked was it fair for me to pay a shop to take them off.. bring them down and pick them up when if his mechanic would have looked he would have seen the bad spring.. i was to the point of just saying.. EFFFFFFFFFFFFF it.. and ill buy the new springs and be done with your company.. when he said.. bring your jeep in sat ill have it taken care of..

so my faith in humanity is restored!!! i will have nothing but praise for 4 wheel parts now!

Oh crap I forgot, burgers, brats, dogs and beer??? DUH?
