Here's the left side almost put together. I had to torque the retaining screws on the disk, install the lower fork on the strut and finish installing a few miscellaneous bolts and such. At this point I took the car for a drive to test out everything. After nearly hitting a wall because the brakes weren't set yet, I was on my way. I found that the steering wheel was off about 3mm to the left of center so I did a quick DIY alignment and straightened everything out. The front is now at 1mm toe out in total (.5mm each side) and the camber is left unchanged from last time. I didn't bother with the rear toe since I checked it just a week ago when doing the camber. DIY alignment: Set up a string/line/pole/board that is parallel to the centerline of the car. This is easy to do if you know the track difference from front to rear. I have a 5mm wider track in the rear so I set up a string that was Xmm from the front hub and X-2.5mm from the rear hub. From the string you can measure the front and rear of each rim and calculate your toe. Be sure your steering wheel is as close to center as possible while doing this. I was something like 2.5mm toe out on the left and 4mm toe in on the right. I got my arm under the car and backed off the nut on the outer tie rod. From here you can turn the inner tie rod to thread it into or out of the outer tie rod. Once you have it about right then you jam the nut back in to the outer tie rod. Next you bounce the suspension, turn the wheel back and forth a little and check your measurements again. Repeat for the other side. I got pretty lucky and the steering wheel is about 1mm to the right of center when I drive and it has real quick turn-in which is great. I'd say there is no reason to let a "professional" align a car like this unless its FREE since you can do it in a driveway/parking lot/garage in less than an hour. Save some cash and DO IT YOURSELF! As the MAKE:magazine motto goes - "if you can't open it, you don't own it!"

President's Day Tires
108/365 So I clobbered a curb really bad on Sunday the 13th in the U district. In hitting the curb I knocked the alignment off on the car. Today the car went in and got repaired. At the same time I was convinced by the service guy that it would be in my best interest to get new tires as mine were about to need replacing, and this would help my alignment as well. Well all said and done I lost over $600 this day which I really didn't have the budget for, but the car no longer pulls to one side and the steering wheel is level again. Story behind the title is from my boss at work. Each time he has a repair on his car it normally is near a holiday, and he calls each event by what he bought (i.e. Christmas starter, Easter engine belts). So taking his theory in hand, I now have President's Day tires!
