Trying...

Just tired now. Changing the front took some time because the top strut bolts require some trim removal to get to.

That was what I was looking at... that was page 2. I could definitely live with those results.

How much of an issue would be getting the alignment right after this install? I'd like something to stiffen up the suspension and make it feel tighter in the turns but I'm not trying to pay a fortune getting my alignment right. I had to get fancy cc plates the last time I did suspension on a car.

Considering this doesn't really change the height of the car, there shouldn't be any issues with alignment.

I didn't know if this was going to be one of those deals like on my sable where I take it in for an alignment and they tell me it's going to take $400 to align it because they have to align the rear too. I didn't know if that was a FWD thing, I'm used to working on RWD cars.

I think you got taken to the cleaners on that deal man...

Shouldn't be an issue here.

I didn't get taken anywhere, I didn't get it done. I took my keys and left. That's the day I decided to buy my focus though and I still have my sable too.

Well that's good to hear. That would have been a crying shame.
