Wicked Performance is great, did some of my suspension work (springs, Koni inserts and some bushing items as well), did a great job, quick and reasonable.

I don't believe they do alignments but check on that and can certainly recommend places if you need them. I just had my alignment done at fastrack in Peabody and very happy with their work too.

Do all those shops have an alignment rack?

If you are looking for somewhere in the North Shore, I'll recommend Boxer Motorworks in Salem for your install and Fastrack in Peabody for alignment. Not too far from each other

We don't do alignments here except for my Jeep 8) We refer our locals to Synergy Auto Lab in Auburn, and we use them for our personal vehicles as well.

Fastrak can do the installs and is generally known as the "go to" for alignments around here.

2nd this. Many of the top cars in COMSCC touring classes are setup by Fastrack. The person you want to ask for is Scott R. He also races a BMW with COMSCC.

I'd like to hear what Scott recommends for a track alignment. And for which track(s).

I can vouch for Wicked Innovation, now Wicked Performance Group. I had my STi built there with full bushings, AST 5100 coilovers, camber plates, sway bars and while they don't do track alignments, Synergy does and I am 250% satisfied with how they did.

One thing, what tires will you run? Do springs before sways, and high rates in general as well as lots of negative camber are wasted on the stock tires.

I cannot vouch enough for Tom and Jay @ Wicked but even though they have to subcontract their alignments & corner balancings, they don't mark it up and Synergy Auto Lab is just as serious, kind, respectable and honest of a place.

FYI I got 1:25 at ADSI's last event in the cold at the end of November on my Michelin Pilot Super Sports if that says anything.

I am having Kinetic Motorworks work on my STi.

I have contacted all the vendors listed on this thread and Kinetic Motorwoks was the most responsive and customer service oriented of them all, at least via phone and e-mail.......

Thanks for all of your inputs....... I will let you know how it goes.....
