Default Anyone know of an alignment shop with a pit?

Must be reasonably close to Chicago, Il 60633 (basically near the Ford plant). I don't want to drive very far until it's aligned. The car is too low to get on a drive on rack.

No idea. I'd think if it was to low they would use the blocks to get you higher up.

The subframe connectors catch and prevent the car for getting on the rack. Boards didn't help.

Thanks Gabe. The closest they had was in Matteson. I'm going to try Pat's Frame and Axle in Griffith tomorrow. Farther than I want to go, but I'm striking out around me.

Thanks. I called a bunch of places. Napleton Cadillac said they could do it but I'd have to buy a shim kit and bring that in before Friday. The guy that could do it was gone after that.

Pat's Frame and Axle took care of it. Bunch of good ol' boys there. Proudly flying the red white and blue. The guy that did the alignment said he's been there for 50 years!

A Honda dealer---uh NO!

I said Acura dealer, not Honda. Don't judge a book by the cover. All of my cars and friends cars go there for service and it doesn't matter what make and or model the car is.

Anyway glad Pat's took care of you.

If anyone is ever interested in getting an alignment in the future, just throwing this out there. I am a service advisor at Grand Subaru in Bensenville. We just purchased a brand new alignment rack (Hunter) & also extended ramps to get lower vehicles onto the rack. We have done many cars, not only Subarus & have had great success. Just recently did a 4th gen Camaro with fully adjustable suspension in the front end & worked out perfectly. We run alignments at $99.95. If anyone is interested contact me below.

I would honestly say to make the drive and go here.

Thalmann's Alignment - Alignment and Suspension | Northshore, IL

These guys worked on my 03 Cobra which had uber amounts of suspension work done to it. It will run you about $150-$200 for one, but, they know what they are doing for sure.

It's right off of the highway and the roads on the streets are friendly for slammed cars.
