Drove the bowling night tonight.

Couldn't 'test' the new inserts.

That can't be YOUR alignment. Those wheels are round and have air in them!

The back end is pretty good. The front end Skip past the numbers and look at the front wheel illustration. Your front end is turning to the left with the steering wheel straight.

Front Spec
Camber -1
Toe ZERO

Rear Spec
Camber -.9 or less, less camber is better
Toe IN .10

Tell the tech this is what you want. Period. Tell him you want the car started and the wheels turned lock to lock several times and the steering wheel set straight during the caster sweep and before the toe is set. If it takes an extra 30 minutes to get it dead nuts on be prepared to pay for the extra time. It ain't rocket science. It just takes some care and time.

I can't keep my mouth shout. How could a shop allow a car off the rack with an alignment like this? And what about a test drive and then a delivery drive with the customer?

Driving a short distance with a whacked alignment won't hurt anything.

They are exaggerated, but we do alignment work in 10ths and 100ths of a degree because a little is a lot. When you are driving now, how far off is the steering wheel?
