Thumbs up

I've gone to Mark Morris Motorsports on El Camino next to the Toyota dealership. Prices about average. They have a lifetime alignment deal which costs about as much as two alignments and they'll align your car whenever you want at no additional charge. Its Great for before and after track events or after getting new suspension parts. They also take used oil. I took my Miata, Integra and now my RS to them since '95.

Custom Alignment in Mountain View, on Wyandotte. Jim there has been doing my alignments for over 20 years. Joe (the owner) and a couple of other guys there race, and they know what works and what doesn't. They're the only guys in this area that I trust. They're not cheap, but they do it right.

Does these shops do hand alignments? It has been my experience that you often cannot get a specific alignment using electronic alignment devices.

What are good specs for a street/Auto-x WRX?
Ive heard good things about that place in Hayward. But also heard they cost a lil more.

I'll give the places a call. The wagon gets knocked around in high winds and a little unstable at speeds. What specs should I get to reduce or get rid of this?

Yeah, that's about right.

The WRX needs more front camber and a little rear toe-out. At least my understeering pig of a wagon does.

Hey Kartboy will they show me some love if I mention your name?
