well we finished around 10:30-11:00
and I took the borrowed tool back to dad' friends house
we had to borrow two pipe wrenches a 16" adjustable wrench and a 35.25mm wrench (It was 35mm but we grinded it to fit about .25 mm)
well the car didn't seem to pull strong to one side, if it did pull it pulled to the right very slightly. But my steering wheel was about 30-45 degrees to the left when i was going straight, so that was weird driving.
I went in for an alignment this morning again, they tell, now they tell me my ball joints in both rear wheels are bad
WTF why didn't they catch that yesterday...could have possibly had that fixed last night as well. Now I dont have much free time between now and Friday when i head for Florida for SEBF.
im pissed. they should have fond that esterday. a different guy was working on the car today and he said the guys sometimes don't check the rear tires...First he told me he couldn't align it if the rear tires were out. I said i understand but im sure anything you do will be better, you could atleast line up the steering wheel right. then he said it also depends on wheels being straight. and then i said well i would like you to try anyway. Then he saw how bad the front end was, and went ahead and did it. the front end is now perfect but its in the green/ok zone. the rears however are toes out, both wanna turn to my left while driving, its very minute and i dont notice it but its really gonna chop my tires up. The guy at the servce deck couldn't find the ball joints in the computer, he said he couldn't even find them for the newer model bonnies. So I figure i'll end up buying them myself, it'll be cheaper anyway. and depending on the difficulty do it my self. if its anywhere near as a pain in the arse as the tie rods they can do it, and im gonna try to demand that i only pay half of the labor since they only half checked the car on sunday...
anyone have expierence /w lower ball joints on the rear tires?
