Alignment techniques

	A friend of mine is an engineer at Rockwell in Troy, where they 
do big truck suspension pieces.  They did a study two years ago to find 
out what was the best alignment method in terms of accuracy and 
repeatability.  Know what?  They found out that a sharp mechanic with 
some string, levels, and tape measures and calipers could do a much 
better job than the fancy laser systems!  I have done all of my own 
alignment since then with very good luck.  Note, that this is how many of 
the Indy teams do their alignments (basically)
