Default Alignment NW Houston Area/Tomball?

Anyone got a good recommendation for a reasonably priced wheel alignment (or at least a well done one) in the NW Houston/Tomball area?

Need to get my college aged son's Mazda3 aligned tomorrow before he heads back to school...

I'd rather stay away from the NTB or other chain stores...

Thanks!

I go to sals auto sport off beltway and 290, they offer lifetime. Either Sal himself or Oscar are outstanding guys.

I second Sal's. I take my G37 there for the lifetime alignment. IIRC, it was about 189 for lifetime and around 89 for one time. Paid for lifetime about 3 years ago, so I don't recall the prices.

Firestone lifetime($150) for street cars. I use their machine but do the alignment myself, aftermarket suspension tends to confuse most techs.

Used the NTB on 249 by Spring Cypress several times. These chains are hit or miss so you kinda need to talk to the tech and look over their shoulders. Douche move but I've cancelled more than 1 service ticket and just left because of the techs. One tech pulled up Outback specs and tried to tell me what my own car is

Thanks for the responses!

I called Sals Auto Sport, but he couldn't get me in. I think I will call him back and make an appointment for Easter time when the car is in town again.

I used the NTB at 249/Spring Cypress a lot for tires, but recently they don't seem as friendly as before. The last time I was there I had replaced the rack and pinion on my truck and just needed the toe adjusted and steering wheel set straight. Charged me the full alignment price to put it on the rack and screw the tie rods a few turns. Took the guy all of 2 minutes to do. I even offered the tech $40 cash to do the adjustment and not tell his manager, no go. I should have left that day and went elsewhere and I liklely won't go back...
