That's exactly what they did. I made about a 20 mile drive after my installation. I didn't really notice a differece in the way it drove.

I really don't remember. I wanna say around $120. This sounds about right because I think I was charged for just more than an hours worth of work. This included alignment and timing, also known as clocking.

I did a quick search and found this. I didn't read through it, but looks like it may help.

Thanks again for all your input. I have read pete's "book" about suspension, but it's almost like me reading Spanish. I understand words here and there but can't really put them together!

$50 to do what? Lower? Time bushings? Alignment? Install tires? Or all therefore mentioned?

Please don't think I'm taking a shot at you or being an A$$hole, I just can't read into what you are saying and I truly want to know.

I haven't made it to a C&O yet. Will miss this one too. Three more weeks of Utah then I will resume my Georgia life. At least for 10 days then who knows what's next.

Theres a shop in Chamblee that I have used for years. Ring up gran turismo east and explain what you need. They are road racers so they get it.
