The goodies just keep on coming! Can't wait until my car is corner balanced and the bushings are changed. Anything else up your sleeves?

So what's for alignment, laser or old-school?

Yeah I have seen that at Lucent. Pretty cool. Reason I asked is there are a couple of race shops here in So Cal that performs corner weighting but still prefer the old-school alignment. Not by eye-balling of course. But using good ol' tools like these:

it makes sure the weight is evenly distributed to every corner to allow better handling, etc...

People with adj suspensions can take adjantage of this... the sleeves or collars that we call height adjusters are actually weight jacks.

Business is steady but slow..we missed being in the phone book due to complications with my first buidling choice. It is better this way, we are able to get our process' and software running the way we want. We can handle a higher volume after we get our stuff straightened out, which BTW is complete.
