You don't need to re-align front end to get steering wheel straight. Have them hook up machine, hop in the truck putting wheel where you want it, then all they do is reset the toe-in, simple.

Mobil 1 wasn't the problem. GM's OLM was set wrong. Did they re-flash OLM when engine overhaul was done? Hmmm.........

I guess I should have said, "I'm using trip B, because I'm never going to reset it so it keeps track of miles on truck and average MPG." I only use trip A for 500 or 1000 mile gas mileage runs.

Yep, get that. But....like I said, you can upshift and downshift "if" the trans is out of it's normal shift range/throttle position/speed/load etc. Again, to me that's manually shifting the trans.
