DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY.

Take it to a Specialty or Performance alignment center that adjusts:

--Set the Toe (Everyone does this)
--Adjust the Camber (Specialty or Performance shop)
--Corner balance (Specialty or Performace shop)

It should cost about $300-$400 for a high quality alignment which does all of these adjustments.

or you can pay $80 or less for a shop to just set the Toe with thier "Lazers"

It's a shame you're so far!

I need a wheel alignment - does anyone have any recommendations for a place closer to the LA area?
