I took my legoback to les schwab for an alignment since I threw some winter snow tires on.
Preface I lifted my car L model with Outback model suspension parts, when I did this I accidently got the steering rack splines off from the steering wheel. The rack was even and unchanged but the steering wheel side was about about 90 degrees off. I lived with it and actually ended up likeing it.
Les Schwab did an alignment on the car today when I got it back I realised (pulling out of the parking lot) that the steering wheel was now centered when rolling straight, I continued home... upon arriving I checked and to my horror I could turn the steering wheel nearly two revolutions one way but only one and a few inches the other, now I have different turning radiuses..... I called les schwab and they said they HAD to put the steering wheel to center to align the tires and refused to put the steering wheel back to what it was before I came in. stating that the only way they would check or correct anything was if I fixed the steering wheel splines on the linkage and that as it was my tires would not prematurely ware out. I told them I was filing a b.a.r complaint!
I don't understand what and how its been adjusted any and all info appreciated the print out showes the "steer ahead" as -5.43 before and -0.01 after they aligned it. I don't know if this is relavent. I'm worried that even if I did try fix the splines I have no referance before all I would have had to do was disconnect the linkage under the hood at the wheel side level the steerin wheel and reconnect. now I have no referance adn would be just guessing from memory at a 90ish degree angle....alot of this is beacsue I only understand camber and toe conserning alignment and I guess its high time to read up on the rest.
Thanks in advance!
