Due to high demand of folks wanting to see my new alignment equipment I purchased last month I took this opportunity to show you the process of performing a wheel alignment on a 93 Dodge Stealth. So far I have been very satisfied with our purchase of the Challenger lift with Hofmann alignment equipment. -Enjoy!

    Pretty damn interesting, Eric. Never knew how alignments were done.
    Looked like a meatball sandwich Mrs. O made ya, now I'm hungry.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Perry J Winship Jr says:

    awesome video, congrats on the alignment rack.

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Grandad Fixit says:

    Thanks! We are getting ready to replace our 15 year old Hoffman aligner and have been pulling our hair out trying to decide Hoffman vs Hunter. The interwebs lean to Hunter, but mostly due to good support. They seldom talk about capability. We want to buy from NAPA who wants to sell us the latest Hoffman. After watching you with the Hoffman I think I'm sold. Thanks for a good video – many good videos.

    No Matthews or Jeep hats?!?

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sal Caracci says:

    Any reason you went with a 4 post and not a scissor lift? also why the 678 and not the 770 machine?

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sal Caracci says:

    what kind of Camera are you shooting with?

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Vmlc L. says:

    All alignments I have done to my cars from pepboys to more expensive shops they don’t care I have never seen my reports be almost perfect or perfect like Eric leaves them.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars _Mart_ says:

    Man this alignment machine is sweet! The one we have at the shop i work at is old but gets the job done ahaha

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars I can’t Say what says:

    Great video as always learn something new every time I watch one of your videos. I noticed one mistake the dodge version of the Mitsubishi 3000gt is the Dodge stealth not the dodge avenger. Just wanted to let others know who might be looking for that type of dodge , don’t know why you would want one but you never know.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Angel F says:

    Only if you lived closer I would of gone to you. The wheel alignment shop I went to couldn’t adjust my camber on my 2008 trailblazer LT

    Did they bring you your two dozen donuts and giant jug o java?

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Justin Hayward says:

    I’ve only ever used the hunter.

    Front right outer tie rod was good?

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sean McGuirk says:

    Great basics.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sean McGuirk says:

    How about a headlight alignment?
    I would like to upgrade my headlight bulbs, but definitely don't want to blind other drivers.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jory Farr says:

    It's great do more it's getting better and better love keep up the good work

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars roy jaure says:

    everybody else says dont sit in the car cause it throws the alignment off when you straighten the steering wheel is this true????

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tands says:

    My aligner machone have some trouble, can you help me sir?

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars GB says:

    I always try to tell people to fill up their tank before getting an alignment. Just something that could help and doesn't hurt

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mathew Meitz says:

    Set the toe and collect the dough, as my instructor at school would say. 😄

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars The Alignment Guy (R) says:

    Every alignment comes with a free battery load test. (From the brake pedal depressor.)

    @Eric O

    OEM say during the alignment, a 75 kg person should sit in the car ALL the time

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars SWS says:

    Learned alignments in 70's on Hunter and old timer taught me to put 100# weights in both front seats simulate driver in car then align ! FWIW

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Donald Rackley says:

    Great alignment tool Mr owe. Full specs

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars dee stew says:

    Nice kit hope you have the health and the customers to make the most of it PS I have the same lift stealer

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Niclas W says:

    when are you going to buy a induction heater for those stubborne nuts etc..

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bruce Gaskill says:

    Typical mechanic who works on cars but isn’t a car nut. Mitsubishi 3000 = Dodge Stealth. Dodge Avenger = POS. Great video otherwise. Dodge isn’t a sponsor.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kevin Brooks says:

    If someone drives their car mostly on the highway, say traveling for work, would you do the alignment with them in the drivers seat or would it make enough difference to matter?

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Allan Moulton says:

    I guess you could do the alignment with the customer in the driver’s seat , but that would be extreme.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Allan Moulton says:

    I think the readings are in 1/100 of a degree, not 1/100,000 of a degree.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andrew’s outdoor adventure says:

    Lmao what a Shitty alignment machine. Hunter all the way!!

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Denver Ray says:

    Best, Man Toy Ever and what Rick P said.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Danny Hubert says:

    Eric u haven't put video out in atleast 2 weeks everything okay myfriend

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Åke Svensson says:

    My grandpa did this on my first car many many years ago. He used some kind of measuring stick and chalk on the garage floor. I wish I had paid attention.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jorge fernandez says:

    Congrats on the new machine. More satisfied customers.👍

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars maddoxwca says:

    Interesting to see that done. I played hell finding a shop with the correct wheel adapters. Roadmaster has the same issue as early Caprice. Built in skirts.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars anonymous George says:

    Very cool. Thanks for the explanation.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars AlexisN52 says:

    Nice demonstration like always

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ray Herrera says:

    Hey Eric! I'm off work for 4 weeks due to a surgery so I'm catching up on your videos. You are an awesome mechanic and I'm learning a lot from you, even at 61! lol Ray from Salinas,Ca.

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Robbins says:

    Bet it makes a hell of a right turn!

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Arthur Fricchione says:

    Eric great wheel alignment explanation and super nice piece of equipment. Nice addition to the shop. Hope there are more videos on alignment to follow. You and family stay safe and well Artie ❤️
