The curse of the chrome valve stem..... I've seen it happen before.......


If @ 1st you don't succeed, grind it, hammer it, weld it, drink a beer and try again.

This place gets it on a rack and lifts it up. Didnt see what calibration equipment they use and wouldnt be surprised if they just use old school stuff but they get it dead on. Go into their shop and they have jeeping posters and offroad stuff all over. One of the guys is a jeeper himself. I'll post up more info after I get it done next Wed.
Did they also align the rear axle this way? or just the front

I was thinking about going to ORW before I read your posting

What exactly are you looking to align on the rear axle?

Nothing wrong with a 4 wheel alignment. Especially if you have adjustable control arms all around. With 4 linked suspension you can create some very funny road manners if the axles are not properly aligned to the frame. If what is called the thrust angle of the rear axle is way of you get some funny rear steer while driving straight.

Fresh from the produce gardens of Quail Valley.



What goes well with corn on the cob? I enjoy a nice medium cooked New York steak.

Yeah they do both. Actually they said my rear was off. I didnt know that.. The side to side was off and they pushed it back as far as possible w/o hitting the tank. The guy mentioned that one of my Long arm bushings (RE of course) was split and he even hit all of the zerks with grease. Its a 4 wheel alignment and unlike a yj, xj.... it's needed because (esp w/adj ctrl arms) you can get out of wack and need the front and rear to be true w/ea other

Sounds like everybody ate well this weekend...
Chris came over last night, so you know what that means...
After a dip in the pool, a couple games of pool, and after we devoured some of Chris' home made salsa and chips, and multiple cervesas.....
Two different tri-tips with different rubs, BBQ'd corn on the cob, home made macaroni salad, watermelon slices, and Krista made a desert where she cut peaches in half, filled them with butter and something else, put them n the BBQ face down, then served them over vanilla ice cream with sliced almonds.
I'm glad he lives so close.
