Which ones?
Thru throat?

Best of luck buddy!

Good luck with the neurosurgeon Bus...

Took the Caddy for an alignment this morning as it was pulling a tad to the right... Afterwards it'll put itself in the ditch in 2 seconds when you let go of the wheel it pulls so bad. I wasn't happy. I advised them to check things again, I was shown the spec sheet before and after showing its fine now... Uhhhh no. Why is it so hard for a mechanic to actually test drive a vehicle after working on it?
I had to switch places as my other guy retired, that'll teach me.
Alignments and tire balancing are literally the only times someone else is allowed to touch any of my cars and they can't do them correctly either. If I hadn't burnt the monitor out in my alignment machine they wouldn't have touched it this time.

Sorry for the rant folks... Nothing like wasting a day on something simple.

Had this procedure, anterior approach (throat). Very helpful!

Good luck.

Morning/Afternoon all. Busy morning doing chores: Horses/ponies, stable, pool, watering trees/ flowers/ vegetables, edging and trimming.

It is time for a beer.

Well supposedly a cord went in LF tire and it was the issue with the pulling to the right, funny when I put it back on at home it didn't pull worse and now seems I have vibration way worse than before dropped it off today. I ordered 2 new tires for the frt as now I'm worried about them. I'm 99% sure they're a bunch of lairs and were trying to recoup cash from messing alignment up by bending me over for 2 new frt tires. They said road force balance picked it up, as bad as it pulled it should be obvious to the naked eye. I know they adjusted the alignment again but it's still not correct.
So I'll mount 2 new tires and have balanced Thursday maybe find another shop to align it and deal with those idiots another day.

Hope everyone had a good day today.

Howdy Ben...
Dog days of summer are definitely here.

Swapped on a pair of rims/tires known to be good and. Vibration is gone, car drifts a tad to the left on flat highway but that's about right. I think the RF tire is bad not the LF... Bunch of dumbasses giving me a Migraine.
I'll dismount th tires tonight and be ready for new tires tomorrow.
Is it beer time yet?

It is always beer time when you're retired.

Was thinking about frolicking in the woods to go look for muscadine vines.
But I could hear the mosquitos from my A/C'd dining room.

Am still in the A/C; didnt wanna feed the wildlife.
