Re: 4000Q Handling probs.

Well Bob,  last I remember I obtained a r/f ball joint for you 8-10 months
ago and you stated you were going to align it "by eye",  did you ever get a
proper 4 wheel alignment done?  without knowing if all 4 wheels are
pointing in the right direction you can't guess what the problem is. Right?
 What are the tires?  I have found with my own car the 4kq is hyper
sensitive to alighnment and tires.  Also if the alignment was done "in
spec" it DOES NOT mean its "right".  Hence your first alignment on the 20v.
 Start with putting it on the rack and go from there.

Good luck
