The accuracy of the newer alignment machines is simply incredible, which is probably why they are about $14,000. I can understand not trusting certain facilities but I would be spending time finding one I could trust and getting a good alignment. Just my two pennies....

Toe, camber; ride height.


Reasons:

Often as I like
Know it's done right
Have my own settings
Enjoy having the expertise

Working on accuracy - seeing I can be in BMW tolerances; gotta invent couple o'things like fine, fine adj for laser position/calibration. Worm gear & height adj turntable for that.


Oh, and I'm stubborn!
