How bad did I screw up the alignment?

Postby cfauvel » Wed Dec 05, 2018 8:17 am

I jacked up the car and placed the jack stand on the rod section of the STAY ASSY-COMPRESSION ROD,LH part number 544C5-AL501

As I started to drop the car on to the jack, I saw the the rod wass being bent and quickly stopped the full drop.

(how do you attach a picture?)

Why didn't you follow the vehicle lifting instructions in your owners manual and the FSM?
