    Do you only have one place that does alignments?
    Last lift I did on mine went to a new place, after 3 trips back finally convinced the manager to look the other way, took me all of 15 minutes and drove perfect. Of course if I had been caught his a** would of been fired but one unhappy customer was worth it I guess .
    Never went back again

    There's one other place in town, but I've heard plenty of negative things about that one as well.

    Last time I took the KJ to this place they did a great job, but this time...
    Dropped it off, and when I went to pick it up the next day they told me that when they went to adjust the tie rods, they found one of the inner tie rods was slightly loose, so they couldn't do the alignment. Really, you couldn't pick up the phone and ask me if it was okay to spend two minutes on tightening the inner tie rod?

    I fixed the inner tie rod, took it back in, and got the KJ back with a crooked steering wheel, a tie rod boot that was completely twisted around several times (no idea what they even did here), and this issues with the LCA bolts.

    Well, found a parts jeep in the local junk yard, managed to get the front driveshaft, tranny, rims, doors, some interior parts and some exterior parts as spare, but I decided to start to mock up some "angry eyes" on the grille I got, but I've decided to more or less make the entire front look different, as soon as the girlfriend gets home I'll be able to somewhat mock up what the center of the grille will look like. I'll post pictures of anyone interested.

    Changed the oil and I wanted to kill the last person who put the oil filter one. I don't get why people insist on over tightening them.
