Whiteline Watts Link Pinion Angle Problem
I dropped off my car at a shop this morning to set my pinion angle. I don't know if its off, but I have steeda sport springs, so it might be. I get a call, the shop asks me if I knew about the loud banging my car makes. When I get to the shop they show me how my Whiteline watts link center bolt on the differential is hitting the brace bar. I try to tell them, that I don't think Whiteline would make a product that hit itself, and they must have adjusted my LCA's incorrectly. Turns out they adjusted the rear to have a -3 angle. That combined with the -1 angle on the drive shaft equals -4. Their opinion was that -3 minus -1 would equal -2. After not agreeing I was right, they adjusted the LCA's using my math, and the watts link no longer hit itself.
I'm so mad. I hope they didn't damage anything on the test drive. They didn't do an alignment after re-adjusting the LCA's and now my steering wheel is not straight. I think I will just measure the LCA's and make them equal. I don't wanna go back to that shop.
Thanks for reading this and letting me vent.
