Hello ladies and gents. I need to have my car aligned because of uneven tire wear and pull to the right. I hear that the only way to do this is to have the beam axle bent to specs. Is this correct, and approximately how much should this cost? Thanks for the replies.

Hogwash!

That car is the easiest, most alignable car on the face of the earth. It has a monster cam for adjusting camber and an almost limitless turnbuckle for adjusting caster. Toe is at the left and right turnbuckle tierods. Just don't get any easier.

That car has so much adjustment in its alignment that it can even overcome crappy tires (most of the time).

Steve, thanks. I didn't feel I was getting correct info from that guy. Now I have to get it aligned to save the tires.

Gotta Love It !

I love the way Steve's answers cut right through all the Bravo Sierra and get right down to the root of the problem. Attaboy Steve! We do appreciate it.
