Like others have stated in previous posts, I highly recommend Dales.

Jason is very knowledgeable. I will drive far and pay the extra for peace of mind. I'm a cheap bugger, but I will not skimp on alignment. I love how he offers to align the car with driver in it and make adjustments to the type of driving you do, etc.

Heh. Just because I feel like it, I need to once again state "+1" for Dale's. Took the MX6 in the other day after doing some suspension work over the weekend. It drove like total ass when I brought it in and now it feels perfect. They did an awesome job on my GTI a few months ago and I expected nothing less with the MX6. And, of course, I received nothing less.

Jason is certainly a good guy to talk to.

went to Dale's alignment Saturday morning. I am from Vancouver and the drive took about 45 minutes. It is a little far (near Willowbrook Mall) and I got lost getting there. If on Highway 10, you turn at the Hamptons Inn and Dales Alignment is located behind the Subaru dealership.

Service was excellent and was well worth the trip. I supplied them a Ingalls front camber kit (-.75 to +1 degree), which they installed and did a 4 wheel alignment. Took about 2 hours in total for my '97 Accord.

Wheel alignment was $89.95 plus GST for a lowered car.
Camber kit install was $127.50 plus GST (basic install as no extra time needed for adjustment since they just maxed it out to +1 degree setting).

Price point was much cheaper than what I got quoted at Big O on Kingsway, Vancouver and at Kal Tire off Bridgeport, Richmond.

The staff looks to be well managed and appears to enjoy themselves there, even for a Saturday. They even offered to drive me to the mall and pick me up once the car was done.

Thank you fellow Revscene members for the referral.

One tip though, book an early appointment to avoid the road traffic. The road construction on Highway 10 makes the commute an absolute nightmare due to lane closures.

Are you joking? Sako is a hack. If you do go there, be sure to not have any nice/expensive wheels on because they WILL get scratched.

OK reading through this thread... looks like Dale's, P.D.M. and Advance automotive are the recommended choices

Thanks!!

wasn't satisfied with my alignment with pdm, asked them again to do it, they did but nothing changed.

went over to dales, jason at dales shows me that one of my strut bolts that links up to the control arm is loose.

taht means the guys at pdm forgot to tighten my strut bolt.

imo i would go to dales in langley
