2006 Acura TL Wheel Alignment

So I took my car to the Langely Acura dealership for servicing and they said they cannot do a wheel alignment unless they change the bushings first. Is that for real? Or are they trying to get another $300 out of me?

what kind of bushing. THere's a ton in there. Be more specific.

Compliance bushings? Trailing arm bushings? strut tower bushings? front? rear?

I work for Acura (not langley). PM me, I might be able to help.

Will check my service papers and see what they wrote. But from what I remember he said the suspension sits on this bushing.

They are probably ripped. Mine have little tears starting in them.

Sorry to ask in your thread but since it might interest you as well...

BallPeenHammer2 : How bad do they need to be before they will do them under warranty? And are they covered under the extended ?

Also I get a click on accel and decel. I have narrowed it down to the cv shaft, from what i have read it is the splined section on the hub moving slightly. I retorqued the axle nut to spec and it went away for a bit but came back. From what i have read on azine the nuts need to be changed. Have you heard of this ?
