Question Alignment Shop Recommendation?

Any recommendations for a good performance alignment shop here in socal? I have Tein HA's but i never adjusted the front camber. After rotating my tires, the front's really have bad inner tire wear! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Westend Alignment
Gardena, ca

forgot his name, .. derek i think
one man show, hugh shop, 300 or so for install + alignment + corner weight, he's a very very soft spoken japanese, so Tein instruction wouldn't be a problem for him

he does tires install and balancing too

Hey SubyDoobyDoo, please let me know how it goes. I am going to need yet another alignment soon and they’re right in my backyard. It would be nice to know what you think of their service.

Thanks,
Rob.

Also, why do you recommend them?

There was a place I used to take my Miata to, its name escapes me now, but all the SoCalm (Miata group) guys went there, and I can't remember who it was.

ask for Jack, tell him I sent you

I recommend them because I know that they know what they are doing, they have done great service on my car, and that Jack always takes the time to take care of my car. They have a very knowledgeable staff that cares and takes the time to do it right the first time.

you won't regret going there.

yeah darrin @ westend alignment is great.
most of the SCCA autox and track people go.
list time when i went he finished up the church automotive's S2000 =) it looked nice

usually a 2weeks to about a MONTH in booking an appointment.

but he will do it right and do it the old fashing way.
all done by hand. also he sets it up the way you want it.
if you have any specific specs just tell him and he will talk with you.
after initial setup he will make you drive around then come back for feed back and back on the lift for final inspection and any readjustment if needed.

usually a 30min to 1 hr job for all 4. But it took me 2 hrs for corner weight and 4 wheel alignment. cost around .....260 i think or around 220. dont remember. it was long time ago... 1year. also you can leave the car and have him work on it between appointments. (but you would have to talk to him about it)

hear great things about stokes also.
im thinking of taking it to stokes just to see how the experience is.

good luck on your choice.

Stokes FTW. I drove up from Orange Co. The work was done in a litttle over an hour, and my STi has never tracked better. Ron hooked me up.
