Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

and that the rear wheels can't really be aligned (unless there are shims). What is your recommendation? Should I give them a call and tell them I want a full alignment in the front and rear? What's the best thing to do? Does Saab sell the shims? Are they expensive? Wouldn't they already have them at the shop? I really want this done right. Money isn't an issue.

Where are the shims, BTW? Would they be somewhere near the wheel hub if they were done in the past?

As for the wheel bolts, I'm not a physicist but the torque is measure on the bolt as it presses the wheel into the hub. This is done in a criss cross manner (star). If the wheel is on the car, then how can the torque measurements be accurate? There's already weight on the wheel and friction from the rubber with the ground. I prefer to have the wheel off and the car in gear, tighten each one and then do another pass with a torque wrench and *then* lower the car.

They had ramps. That was fine. It's that the metal arm that makes contact with the beam ALSO touched the body. Though minimally...it still touched it and obviously made a little dent in it. Not the end of the world, but I want to paint that little part now, I think it should be *avoidable*. No one cares as much as they should because what matters to me doesn't to them.
