Wanted to let everyone know about my hassle with getting my car aligned after installing new front control arms. 

It was that special little tool that sets camber that did the trick, thou anyone can do the same with a prybar in the right place, so the mechanic said. The cost was 79 bucks for a four way alignment. it's nice to have a tight front end now without any noises.

Brandon, yes, I should have ordered a set of tie rods with the control arms, the boots were cracked bad and I doubt if the car would have made  it thru spring without further problems up there. In WA state they put this nasty liquid on the road that helps with the ice problem but it sticks on the car like glue, a real pain to clean off. It does save us some from the rock chips on the windshield.
