i've heard good stuff about firestone alignment. and on top they offer some lifetime deal that's apparently worth every penny of it

They should have given you a before and after printout sheet. If they adjusted everything to the middle of the specs, then going to a dealership is of no benefit.

+1..the alignment is as good as the tech doing it. The lifetime deal is great. Get the printout before and after, have a full tank of gas for proper weight and you should be good to go!!

i believe it's been a month or two. i'm sure each store got the new machine in different days but the manager at the store told me all firestone location got the newer machine.
