Ever since 2 weeks ago when my friend installed the sway bars, my car is veering very hard to the right. I am sure it needs to be aligned in the front end. Is this common after installing the sway bars or just coincidental? What am I looking at the repair this. The car actually doesn't veer too bad if you let go of the wheel, but if the wheel is perfectly straight the car takes a hard right rather quickly.

Re: Front end alignment costs (soledoc)

An alignment is mandatory after installing the sway bars. It cost me $60. I believe it is explained at IPD website as well.<br>How do you like the sway bars? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Ciao

Re: Front end alignment costs (dicostal)

Oh...I didn't know that. Thanks. My friend that installed them didn't tell me that. I do like the sway bars. Definitely makes taking corners more fun <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I've got an appt. for Friday for the alignment...and an a/c recharge. The 100 degree heat is killing my a/c. Needs a recharge.

Re: Front end alignment costs (JRL)

What should I except to pay for an evaporator if that's the problem?

Re: Front end alignment costs (soledoc)

My AC does not work either, and I know it is between 1k to 1.5k to fix, so I am living without AC. However I live in CT where you need AC perhaps two months out of the year.... During the week-end I use my wife’s car LOL.<br>I've once did a search trough these forums, and it came up that someone in Virginia I believe would fix it for about $700, maybe you can look into it....<br>Good Luck!!!!!!<p>Ciao

Re: Front end alignment costs (dicostal)

Crap!! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthdown.gif" BORDER="0"> I have a feeling I may be looking at a big bill. Why did volvo make such a poor a/c? I know they filled my a/c with freon last year and now year later it's empty. That's not right. That was done at a non dealer. I'm taking it to the dealer this time. Maybe they'll have another solution. I don't want to dump $1000 into this car right now, although it's hot as [email protected]#$%^ right now <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/mad.gif" BORDER="0"> At least I've got an '06 that blows cold a/c. If they can just recharge it with freon and get me through the summer, I could fix the a/c permanently next summer....if I still have this car. It's starting to piss me off again. Keep dumping money into it. A little here...a little there. You know how it is on a 100K mile volvo.
