Because...

1. Not everyone is going to describe exactly what is actually happening using the same words that mean the same thing to 2 different people... So he might be experiencing something that I would explain differently if I was writing about how his car felt than how he did.

2. Toe out definitely would cause a sensation that I wouldn't describe as stable. Excessive camber can cause weird feelings too. My increased negative camber vs my stock alignment now causes much more wandering when the pavement on the highway varies.

3. It's at least a cheap/ free option to get the alignment checked to see if it might be negatively effecting the handling of his car.
