I took a lot of pictures, none show the angle of the sway bar, guess I better check it out before I do the next project. There is a corvette shop about 60 miles or so from here. I plan on putting it on a trailer and hauling it to them to get the front aligned.

Just make sure they use the spec's from speed direct & if the steering doesn't come back to center add a bit of toe in.

Ron, like Mark has said take photo's.  Now a days with these digital cameras it's so easy and costs you nothing but saves you in guessing.  I take pictures of things I need to buy with the phone and have them with me. I hate it when I get to a counter and get asked questions I have no answers for and have to go back home.  The only thing I don't like is when I take a picture and get asked " are you sure that is what you have" no buddy I went down the street and took a picture of my neighbors.

Know what you mean. Purchased a full exhaust system and the salesman told me my car did not come with an O2 censor when Indeed it did Huh And this was from one of the major Vette parts stores Undecided

Well the rack and pinion is installed with all new bushing and ball joints. Decided to replace the front calipers while I was at it since the rear are new and the passenger front had a leak. Thought I was moving along at a decent pace until I went to replace the light switch that went bad a while back, when I went to put the new one in it was the wrong one ( no vacuum hook up)   Sad . Thought I would just replace the to piece with the old one when the tab broke, guess I will just order one, another delay  Sad .

Dropped off the vette this morning and told them to give me a call when they were done as they had two others waiting for the alignment rack. Picked it up at 3:00 today, got to say its one of the best upgrades I have done to it so far. It was a great ride home, took the long way  Smiley.
Thanks for all the help.

Ron
