      I think it can affect your front end alignment (although not always). I say this because in my case, my right rear bushing had collapsed. It was always hit hard on that side over bumps, etc. I had...
    3. Dealerships charging 4-wheel alignment on MKIVs (2-wheel alignment only).

      Why are dealers charging the same for the MKV & MKVI alignments (4-wheel) as the MKIV (front end only)??? This is the 2nd dealership (two different ones) that tried to do this to me already.

      Yip! Left the beam on. However, I'm guessing I was only a few steps away from just removing the darn thing as I disconnected the brake lines. I'm guessing I could have just jacked up both sides,...

      The sticker in the trunk will say the engine type (AWP, etc.). At least you will know what the original engine type was for the car when it was purchased.
