    But where I work at now he will align it no matter what it needs I feel like that is taking advantage of the customer just like doing an inspection on a car with the C E L on you know it will fail why get over on them like that I've seen alot of shady things take place but I make it clear don't put my name on it

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Donald Painter says:

    One shop I worked at if it needed anything they would not do an alignment until repairs are made and I agree with that why align the car and it won't stay aligned

    I was a county deputy in Northern Illinois, we had the Dodge Charger. These charger were dogs!!! I blew the motor in one responding to a 10-78 officer needs assistance and 2 days after getting the car back I blew the transmission chasing a guy who took off from me. I say yeah you can beat the heck out of someone else's car. I gave that job up to be an attorney. Go figure!! I do however still work on other people's airplanes on the weekends

    Another better late than never comment…Wow, I had no idea getting an alignment was so involved. I figured it was tightening a bolt here, loosening a bolt there, Bada Bing, done. "Not so", said the wiseman. What was it like back in day before all of the fancy graphics? Probably a lot more, "Come On Babies" and "You Mother Lov'n Son of Corn Husker". Careful, this is a family channel after all, "watch your language" Papa O' reminds young grasshopper. Always great to see the Mrs. Eric, sorry to tell yuh but you'd never make it on to Hell's Kitchen with them taste buds of yours. LMAO! Keep it up. Always learn something new. ASH

    Nice job. I’ve been doing my own toe jobs with a tape measure for years on my own cars. Had one shop get it wrong for me after spending $$$ with new tires. Took it back and guy says that we must’ve hit a curb! Nope, it was never right. Dude tried to charge us again and I refused. After the second run in with that shop on alignment issues, they are no longer in business. Nice to see how it’s done right though. Thanks for the in depth explanation. I’ll now take it to my local place that actually does a before and after printout!

    I use to love to Alignments, now im retired

    extrusions is, I believe, the word you were seeking.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars philstuf says:

    The 45 minute tie rod adjustment dance. Have danced that dance many times. Yes, the struggle is real. God forbid you're a tech with even a pinch of OCD and have to perform alignments…

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeffery Powell says:

    i remember ford trucks in the 80s were way off on alinments from the factory

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jeffery Powell says:

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Markus Joseph says:

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars the reptile guyz says:

    You need to ask your wife if she knows what ormus Or monatomic gold I imagine she probably does but if not you guys might want to look into it Specially since season 2 healthy living It's amazing what it can do for you Many people swear they stopped ageing and their energy levels and overall health is a 100% better

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robin Sattahip says:

    Is there a Youtube video of the owner driving it over a curb thereby necessitating the alignment?

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rudolf Benner says:

    protrusion?

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars SLBVeteran says:

    Yeah, a 400 lb man in a Mustang. I feel for the poor car. 😵

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Trolling 4 Dollars says:

    So Ford sells a sporty car that has fixed caster and camber?

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars CrebzCrazy 4Motors says:

    Yes

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars theArsonist-Mechanic334 says:

    do ask if how much your weight

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gary Meador says:

    What? No rust??

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shane Harrison says:

    That's right if your racing you can tune it your way standard use everyday POV factory specs are plenty good

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shane Harrison says:

    Seriously my mind went to the sub shop because a grinder is what they called them and a raised depression is a hill mount or a ridge or mound or a preficisss

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Wayne Dimirsky says:

    Nice job. I have a 2014 Mustang GT and I've had the alignment checked and adjusted two or three times in 33,000 miles. While it drives straight and has no vibrations, it feathers the tread on the front tires even doing 5,000 mile tire rotations which in turn has made the tires so loud inside the car that it's not even fun to drive. I've had the alignments all done at the dealer and they say that it's always pretty much in spec but they try to get it as close to perfect as possible. They blame it on the factory Pirelli tires which I don't believe because my fiancé's 2007 Mustang GT ran the same tires and never had tire wear issues. They say nothing is bent on the suspension. I bought the car new and it's never been wrecked to my knowledge.

    depression/erection

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Zachary Huntsman says:

    are you in ny? how much would you charge to replace the engine in my 2003 f150 4.2v6 RWD 5 speed manual.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joe R says:

    Hey Eric you are so lucky to have a wife like Mrs. O Awesome!!!

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Gary says:

    I thought he had to borrow the alignment machine at the garbage truck place.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars WouterB76 says:

    ……" i've got the power"….
    Just be careful not to Snap anything…

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nick Mitton says:

    That is some fancy alignment equipment Mr O. Good job. 👍

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars LadyAnuB says:

    For the toe setting alignment shops, do they warranty their work for any good length of time? I can see caster and camber going out and them holding out their hand for more $$$ to do an "alignment" again.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars LadyAnuB says:

    You can do your own alignment if you have the Hoffman alignment system that you do. 😛

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars LadyAnuB says:

    Why not zip tie the pry bar to the control arm? I would think that this could help with keeping the pry bar located?

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars chuck luper says:

    Awesome job , Love y'alls personality

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Papi4l2 says:

    I dont get, of the suspensions stock, why wouldnt they make it able to adjust the alignment into spec?

    I hate doing alignments

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Therion Vovin says:

    Extremely difficult to find such a responsible and competent mechanic.

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars GothRocker7 says:

    Eric, thanks for posting this video, I always wanted to see what is involved when an alignment is done, especially with this new high tech systems. I hope you show post some other alignments in the future. Love the channel, great work.
