Dino, other than loose steering (which needs some elaboration) you don't say why you've have had it aligned so often. Is it ruining tires? Doesn't rack straight? Wanders?
An '05 with lower miles *probably* isn't a candidate for my "bushing fix". Do note that the front alignment seems to need to be pretty spot on zero toe for these HL's to feel right.
Also hate to say it, but a lot of alignment guys seem to make adjustments to the toe and camber without bouncing the suspension and turning the wheel to remove built up tension in the bushings, between adjustments. In older cars with sloppier bushings, *IMHO*, it's important. Otherwise what looks like zero toe or correct camber may not be after it's driven.
If there are any alignment masters on the forum, would like to hear their take.
