The link above is dead. Does anyone have another performance orientated alignment shop in Phx or Tucson they can recommend?

I didn't know firestone was doing the lifetime alignment deal, but i found it on their site:
http://www.firestonecompleteautocare...uspension.html

So me too... how much did they charge? Do they give you a nice print out with all the details?

Good find - I called up using my car make and model - est quote was 69.99 for one time allignment and 159.00 for the lifetime as long as you own it. I presented a scenerio to him i.e. "if I purchase lifetime and get my alignment done now(so f'n needed) and in a month or so when I get my new wheels and springs will you re-allign for that at no cost?" "yes" was the answer so I think I might have to go up and take a look at the faciliies I know is only a few years old and the guy was super nice on the phone.. It's on Scottsdale Rd just north of Thunderbird -

There has to be some limit to that deal. I mean think about it. One could drive at PIR over a weekend, swap out the street suspension for a modified OUtback suspension, go get an alignment to spec, run in a rally/rallyX, go home, swap the street suspension back on, got get an alignment,.......

Perfect timing for me. I am taking off the V7 suspension and swaping the springs for Crucial Springs.

Suspension work is a breeze as long as you have a tall enough jack and 18+ inches of lift from your jack stands.

As for "elite" alignments, they are great........ if you plan on getting a new alignment every few months. That razor perfect alignment goes away the first time you nail a burm on the apex or hit some diagnol railroad tracks too hard.

Don't get me wrong, we have some true artists in the valley. It just unless you have a trailered AutoX car, the perfect alignment is going to go away pretty darn quick.

It's in the Regional FAQ. Perhaps it is a reflection of your surfing/search skills that you have never found it.
