[DML] Re: Rack & Pinion problems

I have done alignments. I have not done 4 wheel alignments because of
the complexity and the expense of the equipment. To do the job right
you really need the proper equipment and I do not do it often enough
to justify the expense. It is worth the $80 or so to have it done
right. Driving a car that needs alignment can be very tiring to say
nothing of the danger if you get into a situation that can make the
car go out of control. You will also wear tires out prematurely. By
the time you realize the alignment is off you have ruined a tire. You
can also get "Thrust Steer". This is having the car try to turn when
you accelerate. This can happen if you do not have the rear wheels
adjusted properly. An alignment is one of the best investments you can
make in your car. It can take a twitchy, hard to handle car and make
it "tame". A Delorean properly set up is a very docile car to drive.
It has no excessive understeer or oversteer under most driving
conditions. It should not have any play, vibration, or lead.
