Just dropped my TBSS and I need an alignment with the 22's. Some places from what I've heard won't even touch it because its "out of factory specs" or the wheels are too big (bullshit!). Anyone know where I can get it done in the NW burbs or near Addison or has anyone heard from G_T_P (AKA Dan)?

that kid doesn't work there anymore. is it that it cant get put back in spec or because its out of spec currently they wont do it? I'm confused.

I took my car to firestone and told them what i wanted my specs to be and they did it perfectly. the specs i asked for are no where near factory :rofl:

No Jared I didn't do the arms, just the struts. I have a little bit of negative camber that needs to be fixed, nothing major but I don't want to go thru tires every year. Grabbers for the 22's ain't cheap.

@BMX. Some places won't do an alignment on cars that've been modded or have the bigger rims like mine, plus the fact that they're painted some places just won't accept the liability of scratching the rims. I know it sounds dumb but it happens.

I just got your message now. I'll text you in the morning. I'll send you to my old job. The alignment guy there does all the custom specs you need, I just need to get a hold of him. He does all the slammed 240s and drift cars around here, very good guy, I send everyone too him. I take my own shit to him when I'm lazy lol.

I have encountered that with alignments before. It is silly.

As long as I get someone to do the alignment that won't trash my rims and I'm not eating tires I'm happy. I finally got a decent riding truck that doesn't look like the Grave Digger.

I'll never make it to RAM from Addison in time, they close at 5 and I get off at 3:30. I don't want to be the asshole that shows up right before close, I hated that.

They've aligned my TA a couple times. They did Junk86's truck alignment.

They've done a lot of tires for me too.
