Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

In order to get the wheel to stop spinning, I keep the car in gear (for the front) and for the back, I have someone press on the break or I use the hand brake (which happens to be super tight on my car).

*A few things*:

It probably doesn't make a huge difference, if any, on both methods. For whatever emotional reason, having it up in the air makes me feel better about it.

News: I found another shop and the guy was AWESOME. A former Saab owner himself and a Saab mechanic in his own shop. He totally gets where I'm coming from and how anal I am that he's kind enough to ensure that I can come in and see how the car is jacked up and that the Viggen side skirt covers aren't removed (they get looser and looser) and he'll simply do a factory spec alignment. I don't drive the car "hard."

He suggested jacking up the car from near the wheel with pieces of wood for the alignment. Is that safe to do? It was part of an arm.

Also, what sort of things should I get checked out? The car hasn't seen a mechanic in nearly 9 years. Once it's up there, what do I look for? CV boots? What else? I'd appreciate some items to check out as I work on the car by myself 99% of the time.
