I recently brought my car in for an alignment and a few days latter started hearing a clunk when ever I made a turn left or right. I took a closer look at the alignment spec's and noticed that the f%$#$'n guy had my driverside rear toe set at 3.4 when it should have been 1.6 I also noticed that the car felt real skidish on the hwy. I decided to move it back in my driveway today and have discovered that not only is the clunk gone but the car is far more stable at high speeds. The only reason I posting this is for others benifit. DON'T JUST TAKE YOUR CAR TO ANY OLD SHOP FOR AN ALIGNMENT !!!

and yes I will be paying an other visit to the shop that did this to my M....

and not for a re-alignment. :(

Cheers,


Peter in Canada
