This is a good write up, 1972 Mach 1.

I too still believe in the bubble caster/camber gauges - with care you can perform an accurate alignment. I do have a laser toe gauge that I fabricated... I may post some pictures of my stuff here.

If I could add some comments - they didn't explain the purpose of caster, (unless I just missed it), but the rearward tilt of the front wheels' axis, adds stability by utilizing the weight of the vehicle to hold the front tires straight while driving. The more positive the caster, the more stable, but the steering effort is also increased. If you notice when sitting still and you turn your wheels to one side, the car will raise slightly. This is due to the positive caster adjustment. When you let go of the steering wheel while moving after a turn, the weight of the car will help the steering wheel return to center. Toe adjustment does not really affect steering wheel return as mentioned; the instant you steer your wheels they toe out, because the inner tire follows a tighter radius than the outer one.

Business leaders focused on identifying mission-critical tactics to meet near-term financial targets as well as ensure enterprise resources were mobilized for execution. During this time, many large organizations looked to their performance management process as a way to mobilize employee work activities around these mission-critical objectives.

All though I agree with the above statement, What does this have to do with Alignments? Am I missing the connection? I have installed and upgraded several suspensions with both Polyurethane and polygraphite. IMOP the polygraphite is a better product.
