I got my BJ for $29 from Scott at Autoparts Foreign (New Hampshire).  
Sure hope my wife doesnt read this....

These tire places dont do 4 wheel alignments, and from what I have been 
told, and (I have seen the results!!) They cant properly do the front of 
a quattro either. Apparently their machinery doesnt have the range that 
the front suspension has, and it makes it worse. I was told unless you 
REALLY REALLY need something done in the front, dont let them try to 
align it.
