@DucatiKiller I signed up with them today to do freelance articles for LS1Tech
"How to" and "diagnostic" articles between 400-700 words pay $25. "Modification" and "brand review" articles of 600-1000 words pay $50.
I'm kind of surprised. I got a response back in two days time telling me I was accepted. I used what I've done here as a reference of sorts.
They asked for a writing sample, so I sent them a small article I wrote on how to hot rod a lawn mower ... basically it talked about how HP is figured and by increasing your RPMs you would in effect raise the HP output of the engine.
I have done a clutch bleed on my toyota corolla e120 2006 because I had some difficulties shifting out of 1st gear, I bled it through the slave cylinder and I noticed the fluid was dark black, I was checking the fluid level of course, after clear fluid was coming without air I closed the valve an...
Whoever sees this... Any idea if I'll see a price difference between checking alignment of one wheel and actually performing front end alignment? You think a shop would even have a price for just a check?
Had a blowout on the way home, but can't tell if it's from alignment or driving too long on a very low tire. The inside edge wore down to the belts.
@JPhi1618 I asked that of a shop once my gal drove over the medium of an expressway. They wanted to charge for an overall alignment and not of one wheel. Definitely not saying someone wouldn't, a shop just wouldn't do that for me. They said, "same thing"
@JPhi1618 - Agree with @DucatiKiller on this. I don't think you're going to find too many places which will do an alignment check for free, unless you purchase tires from them. You may just want to get your front end inspected to ensure there's no mechanical issues, though.
If you do end up getting an alignment, getting a "good for xx year(s)" type deal is not as bad as it sounds. You have to use it, but it can pay off if you buy one for a year and get your alignment checked three times during that period.
@ᴘᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2, Thanks. It's not so much that I want a check for free, but it'd be great if they would (prices made up) check the alignment of the one wheel for $30 instead of me having to get a $120 alignment.
And I've certainly used the "good for xx years" before when I knew I was about to replace the suspension. It can be a good deal indeed.
