So what is your goal? To strip out everything that's non-structural or optional to reduce the weight of your car? For racing?
Ditch the old couch fabric and whatever you have wrapped around the parking brake handle.

so I know I know it's expensive, but he did a lot of work

Readjustment on the rear lower control arms
He balanced the car alignment with my weight in the driver seat, then reset the sway bar endlinks and shock towers to take out preload. then put it on the alignment rack, and did a full nut and bolt check on everything I had done over the last month. Taking extra time to see what max equal camber was in the front ( stock top hats) with whiteline camber bolts. He also checked rear caster (its not fully adjustable but it can be checked for close-ness)

So it took him a while and disassembly of the rear control arm to allow us to push alignment back out.

If I wanted a two wheel alignment it mighta been 120 but this guy works on everything from Prepared SCCA/NASA cars to full on pro-touring and GTE set ups for privateers. Not only this but he put on 25 ish miles to test the shock setting for balance and deemed where it was fine, if but a little stiff. but fore to aft balance was good.

I am running swift springs which are over sprung rear so I had him toe in the rear to compensate and then asked if the rear sway bar should go tighter to compensate but now it really sticks into the corner hard core with very very slight understeer which I am fine with. ( i have less than 1600 miles on this particular car and set up)

So yes. I figure it was cheap. I was expecting to pay 600+ for his time, it took him nearly all day.
