Maybe. I don't know any other Mobile 5th Gen owners. I"m going to call around to a few other places and ask too.

Too bad Bonnies wheels won't fit.

This is the machine my dealer has! They put some 2" x 12"s down so the car would clear the ramp.

I want an application if you open a shop in Mobile!

I'd loan you mine, but, sadly my poor alignment toasted the rears and I ain't got them replaced yet.

If they hold air, they will work for PQ this time.

Randy,

They could do a wheels-off alignment. Page 8 http://www.hunter.com/alignment/wina...mium/5908T.pdf

Why does it say 'Speed Up' alignments with the wheels off?

The tech has better access to some adjustments on various cars when the wheels are off. If they have the wheel-off adapter, you are golden.

I'm guessing they don't. If they do he didn't know about it. I'll swing back by and ask him. It's on the way home.

So try putting gasoline in your tires...

Or is that an event you want to save for when you replace the Savinis with ZL1 rims...

ehhh, it looked like that at first, but it looks like there was an impact that might have lifted the frame horns from underneath, since there's no body damage... dude, what happened?
