The question should be... when is the last time the whole front end been
replaced? I meant the drag link, tie rods, and idler arm bushing? I like to
change all this at about 100,000 miles or less... because they wear out and
becomes sloppy that no amount of alignment will make it good.
You also have tire balance problem. because of your abnormal wear.
I do not know the replacement history of the front-end components, but
my guess is, that because the car only has a little over 200K on it,
they may not have been replaced. Therefore, I will get busy doing
that, as I am sure that these components are worn out. I'll do what I
can and have the shop do the rest.
