Your mistake was to take it to an old shop.
The standards for alignments nowadays have raised so high that a written report isn't acceptable.
If they're not using lasers and computers, don't do it.
I know. I need to bring my car to the dealership but most dealerships I know are not friendlywith aftermarket suspension

Assure is something you do to a person, a group of people, or an animal to remove doubt or anxiety, as in Squiggly assured Aardvark that he'd come to the party early. You can remember that assure can only be used with things that are alive (and both assure and alive start with a). Only things that are alive can feel doubt or anxiety, so only they can be assured.

Ensure is something you do to guarantee an event or condition, as in To ensure there'd be enough food, Aardvark ordered twice as much food as last year. You can remember that guarantee has those two e's on the end to help you remember that to ensure (with an e) is to guarantee something.

Insure can be done to a person, place, or thing, but it's reserved for limiting financial liability, most commonly by obtaining an insurance policy, as in Aardvark wondered if the caterers were insured against loss. You can remember that we take out insurance to protect our income if we become unemployed, disabled, or injured in an accident. Both insure and income begin with -in.

You're not that big of a deal, get over it.

Moving on. Betty, I ordered some vacuum hoses from the dealer ($61.80 worth) to finish the vacuum line conversion. The suction jet pump will be relocated to the engine bay instead of over top the brake booster. This will eliminate the duct tape mod I did to connect the F-connector to the vacuum lines.
