More wheel contact with the road will translate to less effort required to go a given distance. More efficient transportation of energy to the pavement is my theory.
Yes it was part of the package the garage that did the work included the 4 wheel alignment. That also is one of those maintenance items most over look bc they get used to how the car drives. So there may be several factors involved in this observation that I overlooked? None the less there are definite improvements in the way the car drives/performs! Whatever the overall reasom may be.Is there an EHH button around here ?
Patman did you have a wheel alignment after the install of shocks and struts ?
