haven't been active since the chicagosvt.com days - back in action with a 2015 Mustang build. I need a recommendation for a local shop who can be trusted with a rear wheel alignment (toe & camber). I'm finishing up my install of FR half shafts, vertical links, and toe rods, and then I need an alignment so I can hit the track. Prefer SW suburbs or NWI if anyone has a recommendation

Brand new alignment machine at al piemonte ford in Melrose park. Perfect for lowered cars and we have 20year plus techs who know there way around any car.

Thanks Guys - I'm stuck waiting for a missing part from Ford Racing for the half shafts. Hopefully I can finish up this week then get the alignment checked.

I've always been afraid to use a place like Firestone, but I just went to one on Randall Rd yesterday and I'm glad I did.

My notch is very modified with not one stock suspension piece up front and I've always used Thalmans, but didn't feel like making the drive. So I cautiously made my way to the Firestone by my house. There is a tech there named Lloyd that did an awesome job. He set it up so the car steers easier at low speed with my manual rack and he got it in one shot.

i'm not sure how it is shop to shop, i bet there is at least one guy there that will work on/knows how to do more modified parts and suspension.

the one i've gone to is in round lake beach and i think they always have tyler do any modified/aftermarket stuff there.

+1 for lifetime firestone. They have been nothing but fantastic every time I've needed one.

it's mostly from adding different suspension points in my sig at different times. last one has seen probably 15 track days though? so lots of berms i ran over until my alignment a week ago. which overall actually came in pretty good.

Guys - I'm looking for a recommendation for some custom exhaust work, prefer SW suburbs or NWI but willing to travel for good work. Nothing major, just looking to have some cat delete pipes welded in. The stock cats are holding me back a bit but I'm not ready to pop for long tubes just yet. quick shakedown run with kid camerman https://youtu.be/V3OQGbNV9cM

I suggest just taking it to the junkyard and having them crush it... LOL!:pedobear:
