OMGHi2U FYI Alignment place

<insert: Dr. Nick voice>

Hi Everybody!

You may all know this already but Tirecraft on Mcleod Trail has a pit so no matter how lowered your car is or how big your body kit is they can align your wheels.

I found out that my wife's '98 Maxima will not go on a standard alignment rack and its only dropped 1.5".

Just thought I'd let ya'll know.

That'd be the one, although it took a wee bit more than 3 hours.

Dodgy spring compressors and heavily preloaded factory springs can slow things down a bit.

Did you ask them if they'd align to your own (non-OEM) specs? Some will, some won't.

Why all the "Doh!".

This Tirecraft self purportedly caters to the "tuner" market so I think that they'll adjust the settings as per Eibach.

He's making cookies? or rehearsing to replace Homer... although I don't think he has only 3 hairs left...

On another note, I've found a shop up here that does 4whl alignments for 65 bucks and will do settings to whatever I ask (if the car is capable)
