I've looked at a few self alignment tool sets over time. Didn't get one.....yet.

If you would buy one of those speed shop magnetic base alignment tools, you will be able to align any and all car from now on. Very simple to use. Even a Vega owner could do it. At about $100 a real good tool to have.

The front end alignment spec I listed would be fine on the street. Might be a little hard to steer a very slow turn's. Would be better than a wobble.

Which reminds me.... what camber/castor would you have on a car that you plan on running as a street/strip car ?

You need at least 6 deg negative castor for straight line racings with 0 deg camber and ;D 1/16" tow in on a race car.

Wagon rear bumper question
« on: March 17, 2017, 09:18:59 AM »
I have an 80 "wagon" with that year bumper.   it like looks way too big in my opinion on  my Pinchero.  I really like the look of the 72 rear bumper on the wagon.  Is the 72 rear bumper unique to that year wagon or is it the same as a runabout?   Any ideas on what would work for a small bumper on a wagon?    thanks!

Here http://www.joe-escobar.com/pinto.html is an article where a '74 was converted to '72 bumpers. It might be helpful.
