I'll have to look around when I get the chance. I thought Spain supplied Pathfinders for Australia, which means they are coming off the same line as the European models. The pictures I've seen, or at least the close-ups of the Oz suspension, look just like ours. I also vaguely remember seeing that ARB pretty much imports all of their vehicles to Oz before the vehicles are ever available there. I thought they did the same with the Pathfinder, in which case it wouldn't have been one of the Pathfinders made for Oz. Probably one of the British ones, seeing as how they still don't have the steering wheel on the correct side of the car.
We are Spoiled, except for PA (81 is 200 miles of rumble strip as far as I'm concerned)
You aren't alone. I'd even venture to say the west is worse because we typically go from one extreme to the other throughout the course of a winter's day. That just rips up the roads.
I'll post my Firestone results later just because there is some cutting and pasting involved. But the difference between 1.15 degrees off and .94 are nominal. I haven't had a chance to drive in the wet since the alignment but of the high speed driving and cornering I have done so far have been significantly improved.
Yeah, please post them when you can. It's nice being able to see a number of different results from all of us.
Steve make sure to post your alignment sheet.
I will. I don't know when I'll get the next alignment done, but I will absolutely post my results, and I'm expecting them to be better than the last round, or so is my hope.
