Turns out, I don't have enough tools in the home box, so it's at the local shop being done. All my good tools are in my work box (motorcycle technician) and I forgot to grab them going out the door last night. It's my day off today and I'm NOT going to the shop.

After you get the car back and take it around a few corners you will be less frustrated. The rust belt strikes again

For the record, you're absolutely right. It turns out I also need the upper adjustable control arms to zero out the rear camber. They just got ordered.




Honestly, I think new struts would have been a major improvement all alone. It felt like a dinghy in the ocean because it rocked so bad.
