This is done by professional spring shops. Basically, they take the spring
apart, re-bend the leafs back to what they were and in some cases, they add
an additional leaf and put it back together with new pads and bushings.
While it is not always cheaper, it is easier and you basically have a new
spring again. When you buy from the junk yard, you don't always know what
you are going to get and while they may guarantee the springs that they sell
you, you still have to remove the old ones and put the junkyard ones in and
if they are bad, you get to take them out again and start all over.
If at first you don't succeed, you're not cut out for skydiving

Yes. Seems like my ISP has some Usenet problems lately. I enter in a
destination and allow it to compute a route. Then I press the NAV
button and select Route Options. One of the options listed is Avoid
Road. It lists all of the roads and highways used in the route and
allows me to select them to avoid. This causes it to reroute another way.
I have the AE revision, part #05064033AE. Check for this Avoid Road on
yours as I really thought it was present on my older 05064033AD disc.
I have also heard there will be an AF revision coming out in the next
few weeks. Alpine updates the roads once or twice a year. Not always
worth the $200 a pop. Ebay is cheaper.
I have the AD disc, on mine there is not avoid option. Believe me I did
everything to make it appear, but it just isn't there.
I wonder if I bitch enough to the dealer I can get them to upgrade the disc.
Hell, I've bought 7 cars/trucks from them over the years. I'll give it a
shot. If not ebay is the way to go.
Thanks for checking, I really appreciate it.
The dealer is ordering me a new disc 'cause my old one doesn't work all the
time(wink wink) Hopefully it will be the new one. If not I found a couple on
Again thanks for your time on this.
