Got my wagon all dialed in with these on Friday.

I don't have any print outs to scan though We had gnarly weather with the storm the day before thanksgiving, and NH ended up with over 200,000 people without power. My alignment guy was great for working with me and going in on Friday to work on my wagon. I dropped it off on the way to Thanksgiving at my Brother's house in Boston.

So anyway, they got the car in and got the rear end totally dialed in. Toe set, camber set based on the ride height, everything 100%! Then they did some minor correction to the toe in the front and centered the wheel, tweaked the camber, and BOOM, they lost power. So everything was set, they just didn't get to do a final reading/print out for me. The good thing is that they didn't set the safety locks on the lift knowing damn well they may lose power. If they had set the safety locks, my car would have been stuck in the air until the power came back! So well done on their part.

The car feels SOOOO much better with the new near bushings and rear end geometry corrected. Even with pretty chopped up inner edges on the rear tires the road noise is greatly reduced now that the camber is ~1 degree vs. 3.

Big fan of these arms, and I would recommend them to anyone. Even my indy who works on SAABs specifically was intrigued and asking me where I got them.
