Like this?
Modification Notes

I have not needed a full front-rear alignment on my DDs for years.
A few members may not know major tire and alignment shops do not have the rear tool needed:

Years ago, I had a tech that worked in a shed with an alignment pit.
Perfect. I think he may have died of asphyxiation

Now I just DIY if needed.
