6 X 6 Blocks Danger

Not sure what you mean either as applies to the picture below; isn't the
thrust line pretty much the vehicle longitudinal centerline unless you have
a very out of spec rear suspension?
You did alert me to a potential reason why my V8Q pulls to the right after 3
dealer alignment "perfect" checks after a RF outer CV R/R by a recognized
Audi repair shop somehow bent the car which used to track dead straight
ahead.  1st and last time for non-dealer service besides my own; at least it
doesn't pull to the left. Thanks for prompting the thrust line research.

I guess you didn't read the earlier discussion.

45 degres to the thrust line of the car
