Default alignment in Edmonton?

So now that I have a TBE and Accessport flash to stage 2, it's time to get those Cobb springs installed. I'm hoping to get around to doing it in the next couple of weeks - then I'll need to get an alignment.

Can anyone recommend a good shop for an alignment? Or should I just take it to Rally?

Thanks,

George.

A few of us use Tire Warehouse on 99st. Call and ask for Todd, he will book the appointment for Jim to do the work. He is very good and will do custom settings for you.

Bert's Alignment in the west end will do it to whatever specs you want. I've been really happy with the service.

I went there to get an alignment when I was still stock. They did an excellent job.
Now I need to go back to dial in my Prodrive springs.

FYI, Todd has "Jim" do the alignment. Jim does many of the autocrossing Subies here in town.

Jim is ... and odd fellow, BUT he sure knows how to set up the suspesion of a Subaru.

for Jim's alignment capabilities.

I'll second Bert's alignment. They speced my car this year and matched it exactly how it was last year. At the same time the tech actually called me and we discussed possible options and ways to get the necessary specs since the last palce did a hack job of it. I'm definately going to go there again. They are on the West End, near Princess Auto.

So I finally got my alignment after putting in the Cobb springs. Tried calling Berts, but they don't seem to answer their phone. Ended up going to 99th st Tire Warehouse today.

I have to say I'm very pleased with their service. Yes, Jim is an "interesting" guy, but we talked about what I was trying to acheive and he even had me sit in the car to make sure the camber was right with my weight in the car. Anyways, 2 thumbs up for Tire Warehouse.

Yup, the sitting in the car thing is an important step for a serious alignment. Glad to hear Jim took care of ya'.

Yup! He's the guy.

After you talk to him, you'll understand the "interesting" part.

I had Jim from Tire Warehouse align my Mustang yesterday. I will also give 2 thumbs up for the service. He is extremely knowledgable and took his time to perform the job (just over 2 hours!!). He called me over at various stages and explained what needed to be done and what he was doing. He also provided a spec sheet with the before and after values for the settings.

I asked a counter man if I could watch him perform the service and was cautioned not to talk to him as this slows him down. I spoke with Jim anyways... Yes, talking to him will slow him down as he loves to talk. I would certainly recommend him to others. My alignment cost an additional $50 because of how long it took (standard alignment takes about an hour they said). Grand total with shop supplies and tax was $147.99. A standard alignment starts at $79.99 + tax.

I know what you mean by "interesting".
