Are you simply looking for a basic (dial back to stock specs) alignment, or are you looking to dial the coilovers in to get the most from them (corner balancing)?

You can try RCT Performance in College Point, a lot of people swear by them. I heard they are a tad bit pricy but do excellent work. I always see M5s, Gallardos, F360s, STIs, etc.

^ I've been to that place several times. All they seem to do is align the car based on the readings on the machine. I brought a car that was still pulling after getting an alignment there. They would give me all these reasons and excuses, which I understand could be causing it, but they would never put it back on the rack to check one more time. I see them test driving the car afterwards, but when they told me that the roads around their shop are terrible for testing the alignment, that made me stay away from that shop.

I've been to a different alignment shop (a few years ago) where something was causing it to pull, they knew what to do in order to correct the problem, which I don't see as a big deal on a daily driver/regular car. (Put in a camber bolt on one side and added a little negative camber. This was after the toe was set to 0.)

I've heard good things about this place, but I don't have any personal experience with them.

Yeah the roads on college point are beyond garbage.

And Great bear dialed in custom settings? I delivered auto parts for them all the time and they gave me an awesome quote on alignment but I thought they only did stock specs.

That you would have to ask them. I've seen them mess with camber bolts, but I'm not sure if they'll touch camber plates. I've brought several cars to Great Bear in the past and I never had an issue with their alignments. I've been going to RCT because they're close to me and they have great reviews, but like I said before, they leave a sour taste in my mouth and I will not be going back to them for alignments. I'll go there for tire mounting and balancing.

Let us know how we can help. We are suspension gurus as we take our own cars to the road race courses to do HPDE and support several full on road racers with their alignments and suspension setups.

E-mail us to Sales@AZPInstalls.com and we'll get you in for an alignment/coilover setup/whaterver you need to get it setup correctly.

Definitely AZP.
They have the right machine, know how to use it and have no problem with modded suspensions.
