Default rear alignment

I Put New Rear Struts On My 94 SE. Today I Noticed The RR tire is off angle. Top In, Bottom Out. The Strut Mounts Are Slotted And So The Rear Algnmnt. Is Easily Adjusted. Thing Is Chilton Says To Always Get A Pro Algnmnt. How Important Is It That I GET that done by a pro shop?

It'* important if your alignment is important to you.

It sounds as if you did the replacement correctly.. the next step is align.

Spoiled, go to Les Schwab. They'll set you up for a fair price. If you don't, you'll kill your tires quickly and the handling of the car may surprise you at the wrong moment.

Popatim, Thanks For The Batllpark Figure! I Wont Have It Until Late June. That Means About 300 Miles More On It The Way It Is. Am I Doing Huge Damage By Waiting? Will, At Risk Of Making You Madder Still At Me, I Dont Do Les Schwab. They Gave Me A Written Estimate Of 75 Dollars To Bring My Brake System Up To Par. I Knew That Was Bs Myself. So I Took It To Firestone. I Paid 400 To Them For New Drums, Shoes, Flush And Bleed And Some Other Things. They Still Missed A Dragging Front Caliper. Lesson Was:DIY!
