Poor Lucy. Just out of the stable and both back legs are broken. Frown
911 operator: What is your emergency ? Me: Some asshole just pulled out in front of me & totaled my car! 911: Are you injured? Me: No. 911: Is the other driver injured ? Me: Not yet....but you should probably send an ambulance.

Perfect, on that beam with the single adjuster, how much do you think you could adjust it??

And are you running flipped tie rods,caster shims, and a quick steer???

I decided not to strip it. It has had at least two red paint jobs. I'm done. Its a driver. Everything works.

Subie swap? Nope. That would put the power to camber ratio way out of spec.
