Discount Tires (where I get all my tires) tells me my 2007 Vibe needs alignment. I took it to my "trusted" repair shop and they tell me it needs rear wheel alignment as well as front end. They quoted me a price of nearly $200, saying that "shims" were needed on the rear. $200 - really?

yep, sounds about right. alignments are normal servicing every year. shims are required for the rear if the angles cannot be adjusted in. Roy
Car has 218k and running great. well maintained. noticed the rear wheels (solid axle) are cambering in (almost like the axle is weakening), so the tires are wearing the inside edge. with a solid ax...
What tools do I need and do the shocks need special tools to be compressed?
