Local Audi types,

I went to Custom Alignment in Mountain View on Wallace's recommendation.
I'm very satisfied with their professionalism, customer service and speed.
They replaced my right inner tie rod and aligned all four wheels. I waited
ten days for the initial appointment then three days to get/install tie rod.

Front end alignment $75
-M&M $80 - could have had an appointment in four days, but already scheduled
with Custom Alignment.
-T&D Performance (my local mechanic of choice) $80
-San Jose Audi Dealer $105 + labor, very very rude telephone service. It
took 3 calls to get someone to help with an inquiry about an alignment.

Thanks Wallace.

I still need to get wheels looked at by Wheel Techniques and straightened,

I'll be at Laguna this Sunday with father in his '91 white 90 20v Sedan.
Wearing O.D. green army jungle hat.
