I still had not done this since installing the disc brakes on the front and therefore have not been driving my 57'. Today I took it down to Firestone and left it with them to align. A couple hours later they called and it was done and I was $90 poorer, but my 57' is back on the road. They indicated it was not too far out which surprised me because I had to adjust the tie rod ends quite a bit to get the wheels to track good enough to drive it down there.

I'm happy! :happy0030:

Stops great Jim! Still have to install the Pertronic's Ignition and replace the dash trim but at least I can drive it again.

Maybe I can bring it over your way next week and see your's outside. Do you have your's registered for the road yet?

Hey Jim. What is G12? I went to the Firestone off Calvine & E Stockton. I just live five miles east on Calvine from there so it was close.

Have the Tuesday night gatherings started yet at that restaurant?

Don,

Crabtree brothers G 12 Alignment and Brake has been around for years and has always catered to old classic cars, muscle cars with highly modified suspensions and hot rods with one off suspension designs...they can do it all and love specialty cars. They are near 47th Ave and 27th St in south Sacramento. They advertise in our local Cruisin' News rag.

...and yes, Don, Tuesday night dinner gathering is going strong at Mike's Diner on Laguna Blvd at Hwy 99. I have been too busy to go much this summer.
