Cheap place for wheel alignment.

Looked all around Vancouver for a cheap wheel alignment.

BIGOTIRES has a full alignment for 70$, compard to like 110+ everywhere else.

Just some advice!

Do you want a good alignment or a cheap alignment?
Dale's only charged me $90 and is the best place to get it done.

I've recently brought my car to dynamic performance auto centre in richmond by DHP, they use a john bean machine (same as dale's?) and will do custom specs as long as its attainable, you get your printouts and it's $90 as well.

IMO it's still steep for a fairly simple, albeit, important service.
Would be interested in a cheaper alignment place which would be great for autocross and trying out different settings.

Yeah, private shops is prolly best option, everywhere else is fixed times.

Ps BIGOTIRES gives ya the printout aswell, but good to know other places exist for cheap.

Has anyone else had experience with Dynamic? I was referred to them a couple months ago by a body shop in Richmond, but looking them up they have no website... even though it's printed on their business card.

I have to echo Salesman, Do you want a good alignment or a cheap alignment?
West Coast Alignment & Frame on Powell Street in East Van
They've been around for decades, and they charge 100 bucks.
Here's their webpage:

Is West Coast Alignment & Frame the best one around town?

I currently get my alignments done, in WA for my cars at a reputable shop there who has been open for about just as long as westcoast and specialize in similar things. They charge more over there but they are well known as well as I have seen exotic cars there at the shop and they were able to properly align my IS (ie. correcting geometry).

If it is the best one, I plan on getting my mom's car down there since it's been long due for an alignment.

Just got dad's 997 turbo aligned today at west coast charged $140. "Porsche tax" anyone? they said it took longer than originally planned, no complaints overall though.

Getting my miata done there tomorrow morning, changing out all the old alignment bolts, will report after

Will Dynamics and West coast charge you more for being low?

Oh, I think that was you I saw while was sitting there waiting for my mom's Camry to be done. You dropped off the bolts.

oh haha I have a stalker,

$300 repair bill later and my car was good to go, rides so nice now that all the bolts have been replaced and friendly service that treats you like family. Got my car back same day too which was a huge plus because I dropped it off friday morning and if they didn't finish I wouldn't have it for autocross on sunday. $90 is a fair price for the alignment, no printouts because of the old school methods but they are honest people who know what they're doing. Bonus that I don't have to drive out to langley or richmond too.
