Having a hard time finding an alignment shop in the NW that can work on lowered cars. Called 3 different shops around my area with no luck; 1 that can do the string alignment, but don't really trust it much.

DirtyJohn at CVT recently expanded his shop. They purchased the newest equipment in the market. Hunter Hawkeye computerized alignment system.

They replaced my passenger control arm and aligned my car. That machine detects everything.

Thanks inwood! I think these guys are looking for a place to get their slammed cars on an alignment rack safely.
We still use 2x4's to get any lowered cars on our rack. Once you're on safely though, our computerized 4 wheel alignment will adjust any camber/caster/toe kit you have on your car. Come try us out!

Thanks,
Nam

I'm at SW alignment on my laptop now... I walked in and asked how much for a Mazda6 on OEM suspension, he said "$75.00". I was shocked.

On their site, Mazda's are "$45-60", which I told him. Another guy leaves to look at the car, then this original guy says "ok $65... we do good work". "I told him I know, I was referred here."

The other guy comes back and speaks in Spanish to him... He then he says "Okay $60".

I can't FKN stand shops that try to take advantage of people. :stare:

SW Alignment has no clue how to do alignments with dumpt cars in my opinion. I had all adjustable suspension arms and they couldn't even align the vehicle right. Car pulled to the left before now it pulled to the right after a alignment. He tried to adjust it and gave up and still charged me $150 in the end. On stock cars with just coilovers I'm sure they can do the job.. but I'll never come back to them.

sw shouldn't charged you if not fix. i've been to couple alignment shop where they didn't charged me because they couldn't align my car.

That is what I complained about yet they said if I don't pay the car does not leave. I filed a bbb complaint already.

SW Alignment is BS now...First time took my car there, some old white dude did it and did good work. 2nd time I came back some fat mexican did it and said, sorry it will not be aligned straight unless you add $10 for me to adjust some "bolts" for you to get a drive straight alignment WTF

One Stop or CVT is the way to go depending on which is closer.

i agree on sw beeing garbage.... I went there after dropping my car and installing a front and rear camber kit and got the alignment and it was fine then I replaced the rta bushing and intalled a etd front traction bar and took it back they wouldn't honor their warranty even though the guy told me that once I replaced the rta bushings he would align it again under warranty. I ended up having to pay another 80 dollars.... does anyone know of a place on the southeast side of houston that they'd recommend?

many of the mainstream alignment shops won't do it like firestone, costco, etc. however all the local tuner shops will do it.

wrd. If you go to SW, you have to get there right when they open. Greg (the old white guy) is the guy that opens the shop and is the only guy I will let align my car. I've had the other techs there try and align it and they all suck. Greg does great work. The others, not so much. As far as pricing goes, my car won't make it up any alignment rack (on coilovers) and I get charged 70 every time compared to the normal 60 so that isn't bad at all.

Bringing this back up, what does CVT usually charge for an alignment, 4 wheel or 2wheel?


Also what's firestones lifetime run?

He does excellent work. He will align it to whatever specs that you would like. I highly recommend him for anyone on the NW side.

When you "recommend" a place at least let us know what you had done and what you paid to see if the shops a good value or price raping.

I think he charges $150 for lifetime. I'm not dropped yet but I will be going to him for an alignment once I drop my vehicle. Alot of my friends with G's recommend going to him.

The lifetime alignment is $150. My car has a pretty aggressive drop on coilovers and he recommended a good alignment for daily driving. A year later, my tires still look fresh. He will adjust aftermarket suspension components and set the alignment however you want it. He has some progressively inclined ramps for slammed cars, overall good experience.
