So I had my 855 aligned this morning and after about 500ft I hear this load thud. I pull over and check everything that I can see and nothing seems out of place. I pull into a parking lot and go over a speed bump and from the rear end comes this huge thud again. So I go back to the alignment place and they put the car on the rack. We take a look and the aluminum bushing that holds the delta link in place on drivers right is busted. The mechanic is claiming the it's an old car and it just broke. I say it's odd that it broke right after you aligned the car. I have the car towed to my mechanic and he says he's never seen one of these break before, what do you guys think, alignment place f'd up or just plain wear and tear?
