Re: 5KS - Won't hold alignment


    Check the subframe bushings and all suspension bushings. If these are
worn, the alignment will not hold. Your car is at the age where the bushings
probably require replacement. I assume your alignment mechanic has already
checked the tie rod ends and ball joints for wear.
