bring it to a dealer...most of the small shops don't do alignments with an alignment machine

they won't give you a problem when your paying for something to be done, though they probably will try to upsell a few things to you...why do you need it aligned?...got a new camber kit?

I hit a curb back in march and for a quick fix I took it to some back yard place and they partially fixed it but it's soo bad that when I replaced my tires back in April by August I needed tires again and now I just purchased a used set of stock wheels and tires and I don't want to be riding around w/out the alignment done. Hopefully they'll get it to as close to spec as they can. When I originally slammed the car I had no problems, but since I hit the curb it's way off.

They wore out pretty even. Except I can tell it's off because the steering wheel is off to the right and if I pull it to make the steering wheel straight the car starts going left and not straight.

If anything then I'll probably just get it back to stock height again just for the winter until I find a shop that is willing to do the job and not b.s. me.
