Ok.

Here is an example of where I am at.

It's hard to get free time to go get services and alignments and such as it is. My business keeps me tied to my desk.

So I get some time today and go to three different places (INCLUDING TO THE ONE I'VE BEEN GOING TO) and nobody can get my car on the alignment rack.

So I finally find one at the guidance of another shop who couldn't do it, I go there and hallelujah, they have an in ground one.

Awesome right???







They can't do it with my 22 inch donks.

Now I understand that the donks are my own fault but they are pretty common.

This place really sucks.

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.
