The local NTB bought a new alinement rack a few years ago... smaller than the old one, and now can't service most of my trucks. I have to go out of state (just across the river) or drive an hour north to get alinements done.
However, they have done all my tire work on my trucks/vans over the years, and take good care of me. But then, we still have a nice few 'good ol' boys' behind the counter and in the shop, most of who I've known since childhood. They've never needed any other lift than the 3 or 4 floor jacks mentioned a few post back...
I'd be willing to bet that most of us here could have the truck jacked up and the tire off before they could look up "proper jack usage' in the computer... if you gotta re-assure yourself with a computer to feel safe jacking up a truck, should I feel safe of you working on my truck? Not bashing anyone, but where's the old guy at the counter that knows what you're talkin' about with out hitting a key? That knows where to find it in the books (when they still have them)? That knows the next step even if they can't find it in the books...
