If the person actually doing the alignment knows these cars you should be good. Otherwise they may chase their tail turning bolts. The SD has approx 10* of caster. Changing caster changes camber. They need to allow for the change else they'll set camber, move noto caster and find that camber is out.

I had 1 guy give the 84 back to me with both wheels tipped to the passenger side. Camber adjustment was maxed out on both sides. He noted the max adjustment on the ticket and said that it couldn't be adjusted. Obviously, I didn't pay for that one and moved on to a better tech.

Be sure to have them print the before and after specs - especially the after. The machine may dump the reading on the next alignment.
85SD 240K & stopped counting painted, putting bac together. 84SD 180,000. Probably up for sale in the fall 2020 still have it. 85TD beginning to repair to DD status. Waiting on shop to do minor but more than I can do rust.
