thanks for the suggestion but I don't have a STi (yet) so I would feel a little weird bringing my Toyota to a Subaru dealership. But like you said anyone can do a good alignment, it just turns out that the shops around me are the exception :lol: :evil:InfernoSTi said:Hey, why not give Subaru of Dallas (Lemmon Ave at the Tollway) a call? They just opened, seem to be great folks, and are working on getting a relationship with Cobb Racing so they may be good on the performance side. Of course, anyone can do a good alignment--it is knowing what % to ask for that counts!!!
Thanks for the suggestion, I'll definitely have to give them a call although they're a little far from where I live. My car is due for another aligment (stupid potholes and construction!!), about how much do they charge?droideka said:Dallas Frame and Alignment. Accept no others. They set up race cars for people all over the metroplex. No fancy laser-guided equipment, just simple measurements and a lot of math. They actually cured the feathering problems I had with my Z. They roll your car over a pit and align it from below. NO ISSUES with trying to get a lowered car up on an alignment rack.
Let me put it to you this way. My Z dealer put my car on a fancy Hunter machine and aligned it to spec. I stood there the whole time and even watched the measurements myself. When I took the car to DF&A, what the Hunter had measured as 2MM of toe-in was actually 19MM!!! I destroyed $900 of 18" S03s in 2,000 miles.
Thanks for the suggestion. I took my car there this past Saturday. The guy did a good job, pretty quick too. My car only needed minor adjustments so he charged me for a regular alignment instead of the higher rate for lowered cars; I thought that was cool. I'll definitely go there again.Pirana said:I just took my cousins Mazdaspeed to a little shop in Arlington called Stagner's. They also use the manual measurement, but they also do a lot of lowered cars in the area. I dont have the phone number here, but if interested let me know.
