Default Portland area alignment shops that can handle lowered cars

Does anyone have a recommendation for an alignment shop that can work on lowered cars? Doesn't have to be subaru specific, this isn't actually for my subaru anyways.

I work at a dealership with a Hunter alignment rack, but the car is too low (mostly due to the front lip) to get on it and we don't have any wood/extended ramps.

Best,
Alex

Found a place for those interested.

A-N-T Tire/Trackside Motorsports by PIR.

Really friendly small race shop. They do a lot of older rally cars among other things.

I went in this morning and got a really good alignment. They let me pick my specs instead of going off of the factory specs. They also suggested I sit in the car while they adjusted it so it is perfect while I'm driving. I highly recommend them for anyone who has specific needs for their alignement.

Depends on what you are doing with the car and if you are trying to squeeze large wheels and tires under the fenders.

On my 06 with 18x9 +45 245/40, I went with -3* front and -2* rear camber for spirited driving and autocross. If you are just daily driving, and don't need excessive camber to fit wide wheels, Id probably go around -1.8 or -2 front and -1 rear. max caster if you can adjust. 0 toe front, and a little bit of toe-in on the rear, like 1/16th.

EDIT: just realized you've already gone in.
