Nice bit of dodgeball there.

No, an informal pole will not stop excessive tire wear, but a well placed 
metal one may.

So is this DIY alignment similar to meditation?  IE, figuring out what's 
ailing you, getting to the root of it, and then with a certain degree of 
commitment striving towards "right action?"
