Road Grooves Kill ME!

I can agree the "Igor Mod" is more expensive than a slotted top camber
adjustment plate, but you see, in both cases we already had the struts out
of the cars, and disassembled anyway.  Sorta sounds like 'sweat equity', and
our choice(s).  Something everyone has the opportunity to make, choices,
based on their knowledge and capabilities.
In the case my son put both into his car was his choice, you see, we had an
extra set to choose from, he chose the slotted ones, we still have the extra
set, nothing more or less sinister than that.

As for the alignment shop I use, don't critize who you don't know.  If you
are ever in Seattle, I'd be happy to give you his address and phone number,
make an appointment and compare "techniques" if you would like.  As I said,
this was my experience, and I am very satisfied for my uses.
Again, my two cents.  Gary A...
