Default How much do you pay for alignment/SoCal shop recommendation?

How much do you guys usually pay for an alignment? My EG is on Omnipower coilovers with Omnipower front and rear camber kits - I just had two local places (Sears Auto Center and a big tire place) quote me $90. Isn't that kind of alot?

Also anyone know a good alignment place in the Inland Empire? I remember everyone saying they go to West End Alignment but I think thats in LA which is kind of a drive for me...

I paid $45 for a tiny auto repair shop to do my 4wheel alignment. they had a computerized machine too (hunter). alignments on hondas are so easy i cant posssible see how ppl charge soooo much for them. only toe is adjustable on our cars. edit: the shop was in lincoln heights, east LA (east-los!) area.

Yeah that's what i was thinking - its so easy how could it be $90? I could do it myself easy enough if I had the computer rack that shows the numbers. I just want my camber to be the same on both sides and to fix my toe which I think is off pretty bad in front.

i have learned many'a'times not to trust alignment shops in san diego... just do it yourself. there might be a few writeups one h-tech. if not just ask the autocross/hpde guys...

express tire (clairemont):
express tire (downtown sd):
true line (Chula Vista):
firestone (la mesa):

Discount Tires. Lifetime ailignment. $150.

Wait, that was four years ago. Better yet, go ask em if they still have the lifetime alignment plans.

It may cost him more because he has the camber kits on there.
