Shop for lowered car wheel alignment in SoCal?

Those of you who are lowered, where did you get your wheels aligned and how much did you pay? Just got my coils installed and looking to do my alignment after the setup settles in a few days.

I'm in the SF Valley area, so anywhere closer to there would be best.

i second this - Speed factory in industry/rowland heights

there are two diff kinds of alignment:

1. is OEM SPEC where they base on a factory spec and do nothing further
for about $60-100, firestone, sears auto etc

2. Custom alignment where it's aligned by a pro that knows what he's doing. about $80-150 depends on the service if you wanted corner balancing too. places are speedfactory, other tuner shops that do alignment, unfortunately i only know speedfactory. because i never need to go anywhere else lol

It depends on where you live. I have gone to Temple City Auto Repair and they do a good job but I prefer Speed Factory myself. Price is around $80 for most places. You might find some cheaper places but I just don't trust some of the places that are not used to working on lowered cars.

If you live around Pasadena, there is Island Tires which is lowered car friendly but I have never gone there so I can't comment.

Eibach for me sometimes is free.99

Sears is $75 + my 5% off commercial sponsorship account.

I need to get my alignment done too.

I'm under the impression that they won't touch a lowered car though?

Eibach does. I remember they yelled at me last year when I rolled in slammed on Megan coils. Haha they had to adjust the hight to best recommended spec hight for handling. Then they put it on the alignment rack. If you're slammed, it's a bitch to get it up on their. You'd news to remove your bumper.

Sears will only if it can make up the rack and are coilovers like mine with not many adjustments on it.

For those who have full 2-3-4 way adjustable coils. Best bet is to go to speedfactory and have the pro do it.

From my subie experiences, darin at west end in gardena. $90 but if you want it done right, he is the guy. There's a reason why he's booked out 2-3 weeks in advance.
