I ended up postponing the alignment due to an ice storm. Good thing because the car wouldn't start ... it didn't even crank. I took the battery to Advanced and it needed a charge, not surprising considering I left it hooked up for three months and I have an amp in the car that probably drained it. The dome light still worked, but the glow plug indicator was dim and the buzzer was a bit wimpy, so I really hope it's not starting was on account of the battery, not something more obnoxious! I had to go to work so I won't get to try until my shift is over in 8 hours. New alignment appointment is Thursday. I'm so anxious to find out if everything was a success. For some reason I'm particularly nervous about the axles ... I just feel underqualified to take apart and put together something that complex (well, it seemed complex to me). Maybe I should have more confidence.
I did get the exhaust put back on though ... and straightened it out ... before it was crooked and touching the bumper. So everything's done. Just waiting for the big test!
