I use Bob King in Wilmington too and they treat me very well. The only thing I go there for is an alignment. In order to do your alignment according to the book, they need to use a spreader bar and a tool (special bolt) to lock the steering box. I know they do it right at Bob King. Ask the $70 shop about that - bet they have no clue. To me it's worth it for the dealer to do it right. I also don't think your car has special camber and toe bolts. Maybe they thought you were asking about a newer model which might need them. Ask for Dale Eaves the service manager to take care of you - he will treat you right. Also if you're a vet, they give you a 10% discount, but you need to ask for it.
