Alignment places in Kamloops

I say either fountain tire or kal tire. Fountain tire cost about $99 plus tax plus they also offer airmiles if you are a collector

I don't really care about price, just a place that will give me what I want for settings. I think I'll give autopro a try in Valleyview.

hey!
yes we're alive, and doing well.
avoid both of the above..(sorry Ricki)
If you want it done right and actually have an idea of what you want done, Mark @ Alignment shop or the dude @ RivercityNissan..
I have had ZERO complaints from Mark guys work..
If you do goto Kaltire, the one downtown if you can talk to Ken( the ol fart) before you start and tell him what you have, and what you want..

More importantly, Know what you want.. you go in and ask for a alignment at most shops they will set it til they see GREEN, then move on.. not neccessarily setting your truck/car up properly.

Good luck, and above all.. BEFORE and AFTER print outs. Tell them before the start of the job that you want these print outs.

Have fun
Al!
ps... shaun, your funny, that part of the business is dead and has been in the interior for quiet some time.. just us core guys left..
2010 is gonna be SICK dude.. all of us have cars and are done...Cali trip maybe.. or mini Whistler trip..15+ cars.. 150 to 600 HP cars.. gonna be fun.. hope to see ya there.

founntain tire and kal tire are full of fucking idiots.

i called fountain tire 2 winters ago looking for a quote to do couple control arm bushings and the guy on the phone passed the phone to a mechanic who said "you dont have control arms, that thing has solid axles! you best just bring it in and we can tell you what you need" so i hung up laughing

I ended up going to the Alignment shop/ AutoPro in Valleyview. I had an apprentice do it the first time and while I got the toe and camber specs I wanted, car pulled to the right with the wheel centered. I came back and had Mark re-align it. Car handles very well now even with the winter tires. Can't wait to put on the summers and head out to the Autocross track.
