Because I always assumed my cars new problem came fron the front due to weakened bushings, I never assumed the rar would be involved. Just a quick cursory glance didn't reveal much because I wasn;t expecting to find anything. It was dark when I looked the first time with a low wattage flashlight too, so that helped me miss some things. Lets start with that looks normal.

warning! Do not use that car mover! That is absolutely terrible!

we should make sure everyone knows that...

I would either sue in small claims court or ask for that shit to be fixed on there expense or ask them to have it all be for free...

Welcome to my world el pres, Damn I've put my jackpoint thread in my favorites list since I've been posting links to it so many times

jackpoint woes
Your baby's wounds are worse than mine.


edit: HOLY CRAP THAT IS BENT!!!!
I'm serious pres, hire a lawyer and get the lawyer to agree to sue for damage to the car, (the frame's bent!) court costs, and lawyer fees.
They BROKE PARTS on your car, not just a messed up alignment!
I wanna make a vinyl sticker that says "DONT JACK\HOOK OR PUT ANY TENSION ON THIS ARM YOU MORON!!!" and stick them on my control arms.

Small claims court my ass dude, this is at least $5,000 in damage, your entire suspinsion is warped... RTA's are bent inwards and all your bushings are ruined
