Pick the one nearest you - prices for a full 4 wheel alignment are usually around 70.

Wheels In Motion are the best in the business. In Amersham I think... Not too far to travel.

4 wheel alignment IS steering geometry

Yes, these are all places with Hunter systems. I've used a couple local to me, very pleased with the work at both places.
