Jesus, what now Ford Dealers?

Power Ford North Scottsdale said I didn’t need an alignment.***

Discount Tire said I did.

Five Star Ford says that they need to grind the strut towers, at my expense, to properly align the car, but it’s “not” a design or manufacturing issue.

WTF?

[***Ed. Note:  to be completely fair, PFNS was not completely off base in suggesting a balancing, based on my joe six pack description.  I had the same conversation with the Five Star guy, except it was more of a conversation and i volunteered more info (having learned the perils of incurious reps) and the rep sought out info so we were both on the same page. What I was perceiving was likely road surface conditions, but I did ask for a check of steering linkages and all that stuff to weed out mechanical sources.]
