comment How to align wheel manually
Most cars have only limited adjustability, which is why aftermarket "coilovers" and camber plates are popular. Typically the toe or tracking is adjustable on the front via the steering tie-rods. Camber can sometimes be adjusted via the shock towers or suspension arms. Caster is, as far as I know, always fixed without aftermarket parts.

comment Can I reprogram my car for LED turn signals?
The resistors aren't that big of a deal, it's the energy loss due to heat from the filament bulbs that uses a lot of energy.

comment What do these compression figures mean
It's something you'd have to check when rebuilding. It's going to be at least the rings.

It was line of sight, IIRC, so possible. But unlikely.
