Gee that's encouraging Larry. I hate jacking cars up to begin with, and did not like the idea of jacking the wheel while the car was on stands. Yes, my back and I are familiar with the rear seat. I am going to be replacing my steering box and pitman arm soon, and was edgy about the springs, since they affect ride height. I don't want to present the car to the alignment tech with unrealistic parameters. Mustafa's thoughts about the bushings may be practical way to deal with that.
Thanks for the support
