    Yesterday on my way to work this dude cut me off coming from the left lane across the front of the cruiser and into a gas station. I had to swerve to avoind contact and ended up hitting a 4" high curb at about 35 mph. Thank god i was in the cruiser. Anyway, i came to rest in the very same gas station lot with mario andretti (previously mentioned) and he comes over and starts with the whole "what the f(*& is wrong with you like i did it or something and he takes a cut at me and i respond by punching him in the face. Ok no sweat there but i then check out my front end and i see that it is badly out of line now. Like 2" of toe out. I go to work and then i proceed to align the vehicle at home after work. Seems that the 2" of toe out came from no where because nothing looks bent and i had the wheel off and pulled the hub. My guess is that the steering arm gave a little but it looks the same. Any ideas where to look for this misalignment. The cruiser is line up a-ok now but i have no more adjustment left in the tie rod ends

    What was he driving? Aren't you supposed to park on his hood and piss on his windshield? :D
    You can check your arms by holding a straight edge on the WMS and measuring to the TRE.

    You . . . are my hero. Haven't had to deal with anyone that was such an a******, so I haven't punched anyone in years. Hope it felt great.
