Default Allignment $700. ?

So I drop of the car to get it alligned. They called me up and told me they can't do it with out a Ford Motorsport Caster Camber kit that is about 515 + labor + alignment.
Is this all B.S. or has anyone else had this happen. I am kinda pissed the car only has 16000. miles on it. WTF.

One pot hole can jack up your alignment. I've had it done twice from driving through Elk Grove. Some of the worst roads around go through there.


I got the lifetime alignment at Firestone for $150. I can take it in as often as I want and get it done. My car had Steeda Sport Springs and they didn't give me any trouble.

caster is non-adjustable with the factory upper strut mount. camber is only an issue if you've lowered the car, and any bobo operating the alignment rack for more than a month should know about camber bolts.

well on a stock ride height mustang it should of been 69.99. 89.99 is what i payed for a race suspension setup. Everything is calling to the district manager even the regional manager. Possibly even a letter to the corp office.

Oh God, Riverview....

I could tell you some stories about them... Awful. Absolutely retarded mechanics. I bought my first Mustang from them (which was relatively fine) and had service through them too (which was a nightmare). Won't ever go back there for anything.

Edit: Wow, just noticed how old this thread is, why bump it for that? haha

Yeah they did some warrenty work supposedly. Come to find out it was never done. Took it back in and it was then fixed. But they wanted to charge me. I said no I am not paying for work you were supposed to do before but never did. Good thing I save my paperwork.
Since then the car has not been to a dealer

I do all my own FWA on my cars. I wish I could charge someone 700.00 bucks that would be great..... lol When I aligned my 02 gt that was lowered I got the camber in spec without camber/caster plates. Just aligned a 96 gt that was also lowered and didnt need them either. I guess i will find out this year once I lower my cobra if I need them on that.

caster camber kit was useless as its a stock suspension car.
