Default Recommendations for alignment shop in Tucson?

Any recommendations for an alignment shop in Tucson? I need to get the alignment changed on my STi. It has basically no camber in the front and maybe -1 in the rear. Guess that is part of the reason why I get understeer on auto-x courses.

Thumbs up

Mike Vance (I think his shop is called Alignment and Brake Specialists). He does great work and you'll probably have to make an appointment. He's on Rook, which is off Speedway right next to the Billiards cafe, opposite Chucky Cheese etc. You'll be able to see the building from Speedway, behind the used car lot.

Chris, it will take a lot more than an alignment to cure slow speed understeer. You will need to change toe/camber/caster so much that your tires will not last on the street and high speed manuevers will become quite scary. This is just my take on the matter after talking with many Solo II guys about slow speed handling in a street driven vehicle.

Ya. Not much I can do about that I think. Still needs an alignment though. No camber in the front is not good in my book I could always do the camber plate thing sometime in the future...

Yeah, you definately need some -camber. I am looking into getting a set of scales in the future so I can start corner weighting. That should be fun/interesting.
