My close and personnal female friend recently had an issue with her 1986 5.0 Capri, yes, I know its not a Stang, but close enough for this thread. I'm unsure of the mileage (forgot to ask) but I know its under 100k, as she takes really good care of her many vehicles. She took it into a Tire business for a front end alignment, then had to have the front tie rod end replaced. Once she got her car back, the left front tire tracks normal, but the right front has a lot of toe out, or is bowed out. She also said the car pulls heavy to the right as she drove it home. When she confronted them the following day, they told her the bumper had shifted and the only way they could fix it was to cut out her fender well. Is this a normal condition on fox body cars or is the Tire Business scamming her. The car has never been wrecked, no pot holes hit and was tracking normally when it was brought in, any comments would be appreciated, Thanks !!!!!!!!!!

Personally, I think the they either put the wrong tie rod end on or damaged the origional tie rod to where it wont align back to spec, and they are giving her the run around. I already told her to take it to the dealership for a second opinion, but I was hoping somebody here would be able to help me out. Thanks for the advice peeps.

sounds like there trying to make her fork out more money for their f-ups.. something similar happenend to my mothers car . she went for a radiator flush and they busted her radiator... it leeked all the fluid out and he was running on nothing for who knows how long... best they did was give her a new radiator and she had to fork out $250 for parts alone... no labor charges i persoanlly would look into ways to sue these a-hol3z .
