By the way, I went to Crappy Tire because they're open on Saturdays and are close by.

Lesson learned. Again.

Does he have the equipment to do alignments, though?

And is he open on Saturdays?

$89? That's a little steep, isn't it?

Thanks again for all the help, guys. I'll be dropping the car off tomorrow night at Kerry Burke's place and they'll work on it Thursday.

i doubt that is possible on E30's

Bob.. It doesn't take any special equipment to do a front end alignment on an e30.. the only adjustment is the toe via the tie rods on the rack. so even an old school alignment shop can take care of that (it should never cost more then $50-$60) It can even be done in the comfort of your own driveway with some patience.. just make shure where you go they don't center the wheel by pulling it off.. center your rack then put the steering wheel on top dead and mark it with some calk so you can tell if they took the steering wheel off.

after all you don't want thoes tires rubbin in parking lots cause some shop took a short cut

Thanks for the offer. Kerry said he'll lend me a car, so it's all good. I don't think I wont't be able to stay in Buckyland, though. Thanks anyways.

That's what I figured. That's why I found it odd that Crappy Tire couldn't do it...

Didn't think of that. Thanks for the heads up!
