    theyre doing some road work up near my house and it happens to be on a major highway. they completely removed one lane. they are re coating the roads with asphault and they have one side done and another side not done. its a 4 lane hwy. My dumbass went on the side that wasnt paved, and i ran over the man hole covers that were sticking up outta the asphault like 1-2 inches. how bad did i F up my alignment?

    does it pull any? is the steering wheel straight and level when you are driving in a straight line?

    Alignments are cheap, don't worry so much about little things like that.

    yeah well i thought that mine was leaking, took it in to have it fixed under warranty after they had checked and agreed with me that it was leaking, then when they got it they tell me that its oil that dripped down from the last person that changed the oil. I dont know what to believe, every time i go to get warranty work they get as close to putting the parts on as possible then they decided there is nothing wrong

    Yeah...If you aren't getting any pull it's probably not horrible. But getting it looked at is cheap insurance if you are worried. Or getting a lifetime alignment from a place like Firestone...

    well, i have decided after having other people drving it. it pulls jsut a dick hair to the left but its not very noticeable. i noticice it cause i drive it the most. but nothing serious. imma go check the seals later though
