I'm sure if you search there was a thread somewhere about slammed car alignment places. I forgot though.

I just spoke to them, and they are priced pretty reasonably compared to "other" shops. The only "if" with these guys was if they have to do any major adjustments (they didn't state what that means) it may cost more.

That's fine, I'm going to buy my own caster/camber alignment tool. I can already set my own toe-in/toe-out so no worries there. If get the tool and those of you who would trust me, I can do alignments for pretty cheap.

+1. chris does all the alignments for original garage as well. he offers a competitive flat rate 4 wheel alignment, but for cars that are extremely out of spec (like the ones i usually bring him) it switches to an hourly rate. to give you an idea of the types of things that cost us extra: non-spec alignments (extreme camber, toed to spec), adjustable multilink (expecially if it can't be adjusted on car), etc. these are considered "custom" alignments, but if you're just slightly lowered and want to get to spec it shouldn't cost extra.

brake check has the best lifetime warranty, pay about 100 bucks and after that you just pay like 3 bucks anytime u feel like its off.
