Alignment done, got pictures of my old u joint.

Seal coming out of the u joint.

The joint is actually cracked along the silvery line, hard to see in this picture though

Aftermath of a completely failed u joint on a Land Rover at the same shop. It tore a hole in floor pan when it went out.

Alignment before/after. Free alignments for the next 6 months, so I will take it back in after I put a right tie rod in.

Hey Man where in Wisconsin are you? I bought a 99 E46 that is in need of some TLC. Hoping your indie is still around and somewhat close to me.

Let me know
Owning a German car is like having the best sex in the world while crashing a 747 into a Nitroglycerin Plant.
