Alignment should be no more than $100.

too much $ for alignment get 2nd/3rd opininion as the caster/camber are basic things to repair and plastic washers ??

I know what they are talking about and don't do it. It's a fix like putting sawdust in a differential, will work for a week then fall apart--- they can't get it aligned because something is way off and they are shims. May as well use duct tape. You may have a bent tie-rod because those discs are used for toe-- not caster--- not camber
