cool. I got one question...was the thread lock really necessary seeing as that end piece is bolted on? I can see of no way that it could possible move. I specifically told the guy 85lbs and Im gonna check it with my Tq wrench if it is not set right i will do nothing but piss and moan and set it myself! oh yea and Ill probably kick something that would end up hurting my foot.

The thread lock probably wasn't neccesary but its just a habit that I've gotten into since at work we use it all the time on equipment.

where did you go to get them aligned? I went to pepboys, they have had my car in there for 2 freaking days and now they tell me that because the car is lowered they cant align properly...where the hell do they get these people?

I went to a tire store and made sure they had the equipment to do proper 4 wheel alignments and also made sure they could do the alignment with the 18 inch rims I have too .
I went to 2 other places before I found the 1 that did the alignment . Just because they had insufficient equipment and couldn't do it with my big rims.

The name of the shop is called Economy Tire and just so happens that they are an ICW Racing rim's dealer like I have on my Focus .

But I asked around and got them recommended from several people that their alignment technician was 1 of the best around here. I'm not sure if Economy tire is a nation wide chain or not .
When I took the stock arms off I laid them on the new arms and got them as close to the stock position before I put them back on , that way all the tech would have to do would be loosen the nut make the adjustment and tighten it back down .
