i just went into dales last week for an alignment.

Great customer service. They asked me why I needed an alignment, and I told them that I am pulling left. So he puts my car on the machine, and the alignment looks good. Instead of ripping me off by adjusting to get bang on. They troubleshot it for me and concluded that my tire is messed up. I only ended up paying half the price.

If I were elsewhere, they would have probally done an alignment and called it good, and I'd be still figuring out why my car is pulling left.

I've been to Dale's, went home with my steering wheel still off to the left about 10 degrees. I thought it would correct itself, but it didn't. A month later I went back and got it redone for free obviously, the Jason guy that talked to me there seemed genuinely concerned about why and how my car could have left his shop in the condition it was in, because they test drive it before they give it back to the customer. Obviously it should have never left the shop with the steering noticeably off.

He even asked me who test drove my car he seemed a little pissed at whoever test drove it, but I didn't remember, but if I did I'm sure the guy would have gotten an earful.

anyway my camber on my rear right wheel is off once again, I took my tire off and saw a lot more camber wear in the right then the left. But I won't blame that on Dale, I'm starting to believe the toe bolt installation wasnt done properly, which causes my camber kit to pop out of place when I hit bumps, basically the hole wasn't elongated.

I'm gonna try PDM next week since it's so close to my house hopefully they address all my camber issues.
