-- How to get to advance auto --

From Vancouver, go on Knight street bridge southbound, turn left on Westminster Hwy, turn left on #6 road, turn right on your 2nd entrance to those huge industrial buildings. Advance Auto is at the end of the building on your right hand side.

f-in Johnny! Hilarious!!

There are a few other places that do good allignments as well. What area is easiest for you? Dale's allignment in Surrey is really good and if you talk to Jason you will get even better Subaru friendly service!

Don's alignment rack is absolutely gorgeous. I've worked with a few different machines before, and this is by far the most elaborate, high tech unit I've had the joy of working on.


The disco monkey approves.



edit: this is hypa btw

Anyone here know how to do alignment by yourself with those simple measuring thingy...? I've read articles about it, where you can adjust toe out/in and camber with just some tools ..... any local shops have those ??

PDM: I'm looking to drop by and pick up some speed bleeder for brakes, could you guys give some instruction on how to use it before i'm buying?
