    Good to hear you are back in business.
    That's a weird failure.

    So I am probably up to about 3000 miles on my car and have always felt the car is a little to darty and unpredictable feeling at high speed and i suspected alignment in error. All the suspension is new. So I checked the alignment manually and as suspected it's way off. Question now is, who to take it to in the nashville area for an alignment.

    I would think any competent shop should be able to do an alignment.

    Hi Jimmy,

    I called around when it came time to do mine and found that for most shops, if the car wasn't in "the computer " they couldn't/wouldn't do it.
    I eventually found a long running, old school (pre-computer) alignment shop that could do it. I brought a printed copy of Service Bulletin ST-34-1/82 with me and hovered around/coached the seasoned techs on the ins and outs of the car. They did a good job. Here's a couple pictures:

    Thanks. Can you send me a copy of that service bulletin? I am sure it's on the forum but I am feeling lazy lol.
