one would think they'd say something to me at the alignment shop.
Alignment shops hate to point out things that they can't fix. They just seem to like to do the toe-in/toe-out and call it good. The guy I went to was able to tell me how many degrees my lift put my CJ-5 off, and thus the shims I needed.

you are damn right about this to my truck to sears and when i pointed out everyting was not in spec they got pissed at me. then when i took the manager down the road and took my hands wheel, he saw how bad it was pulling and wandering. i told him it was not just a slight isssue to because i had to go there 6 times in 3 weeks and because they didnt care about my safety they got to pay for shims and install them for free. now i only deal with one alignment shop in my town and they do great work they wont let something come off the rack they cant align
