Re: [DML] My Suspension is better than Bill's

I had my car aligned and now I don't go to the same place. Next time the front end is in the air wriggle the wheels and check for play. They do the alignment under load and don't catch things like that if they are not conscientious. Thats when I found out my steering rack was bad.  You have new ball joints, bushings and other goodies but it has to be there somewhere. Wheel bearings?

Best of luck
