2001 Buick LeSabre rear alignment
Hello everyone. My name is Ray and I'm new here. I have a 2001 Buick LeSabre that has been an excellent car. I recently had new tires installed and got an alignment, but the technician at the Firestone dealer told me he was only able to complete the alignment on the front wheels. He said the assembly where they perform the alignment on the rear wheels was rusted and needed to be replaced. He also said that the fuel tank would need to be dropped in order to do the replacement.
I called my local Buick dealer and was told they did not know what the technician was talking about and would need to charge me $118 for an inspection before they could proceed. I don't mind paying a diagnosis fee if it is something complex (like searching for an AC leak) or a computer needs to be hooked up, but I just wanted an estimate for parts and labor to replace the assembly, bracket, whatever is needed to perform rear wheel alignment. I also know that bad shocks/struts etc., can affect alignment, but mine are in good shape. Do any of you know what these parts are that are needed for rear alignment? Thanks.
