WTF some techs are idiots

So i got my truck aligned the other day and noticed some weird things going on on the driver side. Feel all the little bumps in the road through the steering wheel like the wheel jerks on choppy roads. Took a look and found this! Looks just a little bit too tight. Obviously binding in there not allowing any movement.

you may mess the alignment up and not be able to show them their mistake and then pay for it again so i would take it back. if they dont fix it take it some where else and obviously dont recomend them to anyone else. the last thing you want is your tires to wear because im sure they werent cheap. just what i would do anyways.
