    I live near Laura Buick. They don't lower anything here, but do a lot of raised kits. I'm going to call them and see if they can get it within specs.

    So here is an update:

    The bushing on the upper control arms were installed incorrectly. I didn't do the original install, had a buddy at a local shop do it. I took it to Laura Buick and the tech called and said that after looking at the bushings, he thought they were installed incorrectly. I sent Tony, Norcal SS, pictures of the bushings and he said they were installed incorrectly. So the Tech at Laura, pulled them out and put them in correctly, and now it is within specs for the alignment.

    This fiasco cost me a set of tires($900), 2 original alignments($200) and now the $810 the dealer just charged for trying to get it aligned, then pulling it all apart to fix the bushings and putting back together and another alignment. But hey, that $810 includes one hour to install the new grille. Pics of that will come in a bit.

    Is that a different GMC logo or what did you do to it? I like it.

    Yes, it is an aftermarket GMC logo. I wanted something different.
