so....my stuff's effed up...sorta

my suspension has been odd since i got my so-called 'alignment' after putting it on, but i've found some new problems.

when i lock my steering wheel to either direction, i hear rubbing and squealing from tire against strut. however, in theory the steering rack should have a limit as to how far it can turn one way and should never hit the strut unless using a really really off-set/wide wheel.

now i am going for an alignment in the morning, and we'll see if that fixes it.

because the last alignment he didn't even loosen the caster/camber plates and basically 'forced aligned' it.

my little rant. cuz it pisses me off, even tho i've had it like this for months. just too lazy to deal with it. worse case scenario ill need a new steering rack and a-arms. if so, time for delrin

update once alignment is done and maybe pix of the damage to the strut.

sparknotes:

suspension/alignment is really screwy and it may require an overhaul.

you probably should have talked to the shop owner\manager as soon as the problems became apparent. could have saved a ****load of $. now you may have to have your struts, springs and c/c plates replaced. suspension should NEVER be "force aligned" ..i'd kick a ****ing fit if a shop did that to my car

so went in, and turns out the alignment rack where i wanted to go was f*ed. but i can wait, since it's a free alignment from friends.

gah frustrating.
