Post Alignment shop recommendation

Does anyone have any recommendations for alignment shops? I'm looking for a competition alignment for the Rex, and I don't have a favorite shop in the area yet. I've searched and only found one recommendation: National Tire & Battery - Golf & Algonquin Rd. Does anyone have anyplace else they like.

Since I'm running stock, I'm going for max camber front and rear (hoping 1.5 deg front and whatever I can get rear). Still debating toe settings, as there are a number of mixed signals out there.

If you're running stock class, you'll want to make sure the camber in the rear is close to 0, IMO. It'll give you more oversteer, which is what you need in an AWD car. Kick the arse out, hit the gas and pull away.

No preferences here... I still haven't gotten an alignment after installing my suspension last September. *shrug*

I've had suspension and alignment done at NTB on Golf and Algonquin rd, several times as I've played around with both. Talk to Gus or John (sales reps) and ask to have the work done by "Bennie". Tell em Andrew sent you from the Subaru Club. This particular NTB will warrenty the work (no questions) for 6 months/6000 miles. Dealer ripped appart the rear suspension to fix a leaky diff and my next trip was to NTB to have the alignnment redone, under warrenty.

Stay away from the Subaru owner at NTB apparently he does not represent that store very well.

If Bill Langensomething-er-other is still at the Just Tires on LaGrange Road just off Ogden, I recommend them.

Didn't even blink about putting 3 1/4 degrees of negative camber in the front of my MR2, nor my request to make sure they put 180 foot/lbs on the crash bolts.

That said, Just Tires in general seem to be competant, and willing to do special requests.
The one in Arlington Heights, however, cannot find their ass with both hands and a flashlight.
The JT in Westmont is very good, too.

There are a few other very good places around; one in Northbrook off Willow Rd. I know a few autocrossers who recommend K&O Tire in Elk Grove, too.
