Drifting Practice.

We had about 3 inches of snow today. So tonight I went out to practice my drifting. Not too terribly bad at it but I still can't drift it so much as just slide it. It was a lot easier in my RWD Blazer.

Anyway I was pulling into a parking lot and pulled the brake to slide in. I guess I need more practice because I ended up sliding into the curb with my rear driver side wheel with a loud smack!

I got out and the rim looks fine and it seems to be in place (I don't think I will need it aligned). Drove fine the rest of the way.

What should I watch for to clue me in if it is out of alignment?

vibrations, wheel hop....
that would be balance problems.

if its out of alignment, you would have to drive it on a flat road and if your blazer pulls to the side of the impact, it would be out. but its a straight axle in the rear so there would be no way to fix it because you probably bent the axle. new one would be wise, but like i said, only if you feel it pulling.
could also indicate an alignment problem, dumbass, hey looked i spelled it right hahahahahaha
FWD = no fun drifting
yeah... i cant even tell its FWD on the highway
you punch it and it goes forward no big difference there, its a straight line and already going to fast for wheel spin
youre trying to say i dont know this when i work on these type of things every day.... the only way you would get a vibration is if he was missing hella parts or damaged them critically in the FRONT. in the rear, you would hear the vibration instead of seeing and feeling it in the steering wheel. and still its not alignment, it would be a bent wheel or improper placement of parts or balance of tires. An alignment is the adjustment of the lower control arms, upper control arms and toe set of the front and possible rear of a vehicle to make sure that they are rolling parallel to each side and perpendicular to the rears. not callin you a dumbass (look i spelled it right for you instead of shorthanding) but saying that dont call me wrong on something i specialize in.
I dont claim to work at a shop, I just know from experiance what all I had to get done after hitting a curb while turning about about 45-55mph a few years back and the way the tech explained it to me

you said you where special, :D
Where do you work? I've never seen a Jiffy Lube that specializes in alignment.
lol does wal-mart do alignments
no the question is would you trust sseiboi who works at walmart to do your alignment
