Default Looking for a shop to dial in my suspension

Looking for someone to dial in my suspension on my car, align everything, and give it a once over. Preferably someone around the Arlington Heights (Northwest Suburbs) area.

Anyone recommend a place?

Thalmann's Alignment in Northbrook does a lot of race setups for local shops. They've been good to me with my modified suspensions. They're not set up for corner balancing, etc., but a good knowledgeable shop.

TA was too many years ago... I don't recall... but yes, I was also searching for a suspension guru for that car. It needed it!

Thalmans alignment shop in Glenview/Northbrook. Did work on my 03 Cobra which had significant suspension mods done to it. Great attention to detail and fair pricing.
