Exactly, I ended up doing that down here with the Firestone/Mastercare. I heard up north they don't honor it anymore, but if that rule is like most things, I will have about 10 more years till the south catches up!

I think it cost about $120 for a lifetime deal where I can bring it back whenever I want to. I bought it 6 months ago and have had my car aligned three times already (damn New Orleans streets!), and I will get another one once I do the control arms and tie rod ends.
