Re: steering

My steering is fairly precise but we've done alignment, balancing, repack F L/R bearings, and new tires. These made things back to 95%, but there's still some shimmy. We checked the ball-joints/bushings on the mentioned parts and they have some play. I figured it's time to replace them any how...
It's not possible to align a car with all of the issues you mention.
The alignment folks probably told you this, though some places will 'align' anything...

Proves that age is a big factor in this stuff, even with low mileage. Interesting...
