Default 4 wheel alignment in Calgary... best place?

WHere in Calgary are the best places to get 4 wheel alignments? My first time getting one done here so I want to go to someone who is pretty good and will give alignment printouts afterwards. Thanks, JC

There is also a subaru mechanic shop up at 32nd and 12st NE (right by the car wash). I went by there a few times and always see subarus inside, they might be able to give you a hand.

You probably just want it done, but if you're serious about rallying some day you should learn how to do your own. Other that having an absolutely flat surface to work on and about 8 hours the first time, you don't need much in the way of tools.

I've only done mine once with help from MikeD02, but since I just replaced my strut tops, I'm looking at doing it on my own. My garage floor is pretty uneven, so I'll have to start looking for material to shim things flat.

I acquired a smart camber guage. If it will help I'll lend it to you.

I definitely want to learn how to do it myself but no time this time around so I'm just gonna pay. But perhaps I'll come assist you when you're doing yours so I can learn the process. I know some measuring is involved so I can hold the stupid end of the tape measure.

Right next door to this place is a shop called 'master tune' 291-3810. Its not a fancy shop, but they have a cheap rate ($60ish / hour) do good work, and wont take you to the cleaners. I send my car there, and all my coworkers have their automotive work done by them also.

I thought about taking my car to the suby place next door, but, eeh i didnt feel comfortable with them (first impressions) and i didnt have any good references. Now that i have a history with mastertune i'll always use them.

Master Tune are the biggest crooks.

I took my car to CMS and they set it up exactly the way I wanted.
