Tire Balancing & alignment
I bought a new set of tires for the '88 5k CSTQ last weekend and had a
similar experience as Bob had. Driving away from the tire shop I jumped
on the freeway and heard 3 thunks, coming from 3 different corners of the
car. I took the car back and told them to re-check ... they said only
one weight was thrown, but they rebalanced all 4 for me anyway. I spec-
ifically asked for the crimp-on weights because I have had problems in
the past with tape-ons interfering with the front rotors. I have the
stock turbo-styled wheels. What's a mother to do?
With regards to how often I get the alignment checked, I do it whenever
I notice any unusual wear when I rotate the tires, or after I've done any
work on the suspension or steering. I had the '88 checked after I replaced
the steering rack. They said that the front alignment was fine, but the
rear needed adjustment.
