Re: Alignment Issues After Drop

$205. The reason being the other shops Fcked it up so bad it took a while to get it right. The caster was way off which can be a nightmare to get back in sync. Normal alignment would have been $160.

Also, when I brought it in the front springs were still "sticking". i.e. when the suspension traveled too much they would stay extended for a while. It took a few minutes of driving for them to settle. This was most prevalent when the Jeep was put onto a lift with the wheels hanging. After they were finished it stopped doing this.

All in all I spent $160 (80X2) at 2 reputable alignment shops and wasted countless hours. I should have gone to the dealership the first time. Hindsight...
