Edit: RTAB are estimated to be delivered on thursday. Had a staff from mistool e-mail me asking for my address. I responded back but haven't heard anything since.

Edit 2: @taylor192 And no, that did not include an alignment. Lol, I'm guessing it's going to be a pita seeing as you would rather pay than save a couple bucks.
So basically just make a mark on rta while its sitting on the ground? Not possible. And what do you do if bushing spun on rubber or they were replaced before you bought the car? Only way i could see marking working is on brand new bushings from factory. Then mark them after bracket is loose from car body
