In preparation for my road trip starting in 4 days, I decided to take my car to discount tire to pay for a lifetime balance and rotation on these new tires, since I do not trust the last place with balancing these. And discount tire delivered. These guys rock. They balanced it better.
Then went to my vinyl guy and put on my stickers for my road trip. Well, this stickers was more for my major road trip in July. Though not confirmed yet, I just put the stickers on now for my new short road trip.
Almost called it a day, but since I had time, I went to get an alignment. Well, I have FREE lifetime alignment on both of my cars for the life of the cars. So, stopped at firestone and glad I did when they came and told me my alignment was off and it is back to specs.
With the balance and rotation and alignment done, my QX truly drives straight. Now the QX is ready for its trip. Just locked up now in the garage and waiting for thursday when I get off work to pull it out, get the roof rack on, load it up, shower and then hit the road.
