honestly it feels just fine. no play at all in the steering wheel while driving. new tires on, vibration is almost nonexistent. there’s very very little when reaching ~40mph, but i think that’s normal? will try your tip tomorrow petros, just to be sure abt no play.

the mechanic asked me to. he called around and couldn’t find parts for my car. will definitely be taking it to a different shop.

jarf, hoping my ez will also go that far for me with little problems. also, funny that yours didn’t impress the girls—i’m a girl and the lil tercel impressed me :)
