Custom alignment shop thread?

Recommended Posts

There was a thread from last season somewhere about a shop that did custom alignments in the west end. Everyone seemed happy with the job they were doing. The thread seems to have disappeared?  Does anyone remember the name of the shop or have a recommendation for a good shop to use?

thanks

They were great. i will go there again, they put in extra effort for a non-standard job and that's a big deal in my book.

I'm so conflicted, this thread says it's good but I've had two IM's saying to steer clear.

Are there any other options out there?

From what I understand, the conflicts at the shop come from other work, and not the custom alignments, though I might be wrong

Our club sponsor Speed Factor does custom alignments.
Hopefully someone can chime in on their experience as I have none personally.

I had a great experience at Speedfactor getting custom specs done. Good equipment, good tech, not cheap but worth the cost IMO. Was around $200 if I remember correctly.

I got Winnipeg Honda to do my S2000. I went there because they have a machine that doesn't mount to your rim so therefore less chance for damaging your wheels. The machine is also friendly to lowered cars.

Hey Dale, have you found a shop that you like yet? I need to do an alignment now that I have some coilovers on.

Wow, with almost a full degree of front toe in that thing must have been a little squirrely in the corners? Or had you just changed some components?

X3 on speedfactor. They did my last two alignments and did a great job. No complaints.

Any advice on a place that does a good alignment for cheap? Looking for a sale I guess for my parent's beater.

Speedfactor will do a basic alignment I believe for 89 dollars plus tax. I am unsure, maybe take it to Canadian Tire?

Curtis works kitty corner from this location.  

May just be closing the Selkirk shop perhaps. 

Have alook at their other adds. Looks like they are retiring.  Wanna go shopping?

Story is the owner is retiring and couldn’t find anyone to take over the business so he’s selling everything.
